Learn how to comply with USCIS’ modifications to remote employment verification requirements, E-Verify and more.

As U.S. employers brace for the impact of the Coronavirus on the U.S. workforce and consider the possibility of employees working remotely, a common area of concern is the Form I-9 process.

The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has temporarily modified the verification process of employment eligibility and E-Verify during the COVID-19 crisis.To take advantage of the modified employment verification process, employers must have a Form I-9 remote document review policy in place. This is coupled with the fact that recently a new Form I-9 must be used by May 1, 2020, so employers are scrambling to understand all of their current compliance obligations for completing, correcting, and verifying employment eligibility on the Form I-9 while dealing with the pandemic the world currently faces.

And, that’s not all: Many employers have questions about the impact COVID-19 has work visa-related issues concerning unemployment compensation and more
