The ending of the COVID-19 virtual Form I-9 verification flexibility
rules is such a big deal that we can’t cover it in just one webinar!
You may have joined our webinar on May 11 called
Virtual Form I-9 Flexibility is Coming to a
Close (if not, check out the on-demand version
here). That webinar covered the basics of the ruling, timelines,
requirements, etc. We hosted another session focusing on the I-9
physical inspection process required with the change in policy, by far
the biggest category of questions submitted during our previous event.
Changes Part 2: Completing the Physical Inspection
Here are some topics covered in part 2 of our webinar:
When do I need to complete a brand new I-9 for
an existing employee?
What if the
employee verified virtually no longer works for us?
What if the person verifying the I-9 in person
isn’t the same person who verified it virtually?
Does the employee need to provide the same documents?
What if they are lost or expired?
do I need to keep copies of, if any?
What if we are fully remote? How can we get these
In addition to these topics, our subject matter expert John
Fay again answered live questions from attendees. Time is ticking,
so don’t miss your chance to learn more about the I-9 physical
verification process so you can help your organization prepare for the deadline.
