Form I-9 Update: Latest ICE Requirements for Remote Hires
Hiring new employees remotely has left many employers unsure of how to properly update Form I-9s, especially if they completed Section 2 on a virtual (remote) basis.. Employers are left even more uncertain since Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has changed its guidance on how to conduct virtual document inspections during the pandemic.
Once normal operations resume, all employees onboarded using remote verification, must report to their employer within three business days for in-person verification. What if you miss that deadline? Updating your I-9s properly is a tricky business – and errors can cost employers hundreds to thousands per incident in fines.
