The I-9 form preparation, correction, and internal/external audit is still a headache and even a nightmare for Employers and professionals. Based on the new updates, this training will identify the changes that are proposed, the current trends of errors made, and some of the mistakes that are made which will assist in reducing errors and fines, and penalties. DHS extends the flexibility to use the I-9 form remote option but Employers still need to reverify documents and have a policy in place unless that criteria changes. Employers should be proactive in reviewing the ID documents before “Normal Operations Resume”

WHY SHOULD YOU ATTEND?

We have been waiting with bated breath for the New I-9 Form to be created and shared with us by 2022. But if history is any indicator of the future, the last time in 2020 when there were changes in the proposed I-9 form DHS extended the use of the expired 8/31/20 I-9 form until after the expiration date.

Moreover, the previous expired I-9 form was allowed to be used after January 2021 until the new I-9 Form was launched and effective in April 2021.

When you add the DHS extension of the remote I-9 option until July 31, 2023, Employers and professionals are now more than ever confused about the entire I-9 Form process. Although the extension of the Remote I-9 process may help with the onboarding process but will make completing the I-9 document still complex.
Although the I-9 form is a 2-page document, there is a 15-page instruction page and over 70 pages in a manual to complete the form. The plan to streamline the I-9 form and make it less cumbersome includes the following proposed changes

  • Compressing Sections 1 and 2 from two pages to one page to reduce paper use
  • Moving Section 3 to a separate Reverification and Rehire Supplement, making it "a stand-alone section, which only is accessed if needed
  • Updating the List of Acceptable Documents to include a link to List C documents (on the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services website) issued by DHS. Some List C documents were unlisted, so this will be a helpful resource
  • Reducing and simplifying the form's instructions from 15 pages to 7 pages
  • Removing electronic PDF enhancements to ensure that the form can be completed on all electronic devices. "Problems that some users may have had due to software issues may be reduced

 
Employers must provide written documentation of their remote onboarding and telework policy for each covered employee.
