  • 1.  I-9 verifications - ICE Covid exemption for remote or hybrid employees

    Posted 15 days ago
    Hi all

    How are you handling the I-9 verifications of hybrid workers? Considering that ICE has extended again the Covid exemption for virtual I-9 verifications for remote workers til 7/31/23,  I'm wondering how this applies to those employees who are working hybrid. If the hybrid work is predominantly remote (for example 3 days at home, 2 in office or 4/1 etc) would you consider the ICE exemption also to be applicable to hybrid employees or only fully remote work?

    Thanks for any input on how you interpret the ruling.  We want to ensure we are in compliance!

    Hi Alexandra!  In a hybrid situation, it is my understanding the exemption does not apply.  Here's one excerpt from an ICE update:
    ...as of April 1, 2021, the requirement that employers inspect employees' Form I-9 identity and employment eligibility documentation in-person applies only to those employees who physically report to work at a company location on any regular, consistent, or predictable basis.
