I-9 Compliance Flexibility Extended to July 19

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) office has extended its flexibility regarding the physical presence requirements for I-9 inspection until July 19, 2020. The eligibility requirements are unchanged and are applicable to employers and workplaces that are operating remotely.
