Part 1: Form I-9 Compliance During the Pandemic (Expecting the Unexpected)
September 24th, 2PM ET
During the past few months, HR departments across the U.S. have witnessed a significant change in Form I-9 and E-Verify policies from the government, due in large part to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and the widespread shift to remote work. Time worn and trusty I-9 procedures have gone out the window, replaced instead by hastily concocted workflows for hiring a new employee who will not set foot in an HR office for the foreseeable future.
For HR and I-9 compliance managers, this is no small feat. The Form I-9 has an intricate array of rules, competing objectives, and unforgiving timelines – making it one of the most complicated 2-page forms in America. To make matters worse, the government has resumed their worksite enforcement activities, with a particular focus on ensuring that I-9s are completed properly and in a timely fashion.
Please join us for this fast-paced and timely webinar, led by a nationally-recognized I-9 expert and immigration attorney, John Fay. This specialized webcast will reveal best practices and useful tips for managing the unexpected in your I-9 and E-Verify program:
- Learn about recent Form I-9 audit statistics and trends
- Understand the new DHS policy for virtual I-9 completion, including advantages, disadvantages, and other important considerations

Part 2: Best Practices for Managing I-9 and E-Verify Obligations for a Remote Workforce
October 8th, 2PM ET
As remote working arrangements continue to thrive across the US, HR managers must cope with the ultimate compliance conundrum: how in the world can you complete the Form I-9 and E-Verify process for a newly hired employee who lives hundreds (or even thousands) of miles away? Under the traditional I-9 rules, an employer or representative must physically examine the original document(s) in-person with the new hire employee, and ensure the entire I-9 is completed within 3 days of the employee’s start date.
This process often becomes a logistical nightmare for HR and hiring managers as they scramble to locate someone who is able and willing to complete the I-9. To make matters worse, employers are ultimately liable for any errors or omissions that are committed by an authorized representative.
Join this interactive session to learn best practices from the field on how to choose an authorized representative and ensure compliance with constantly changing Form I-9 and E-Verify rules.
- Understand the latest developments in I-9 and E-Verify guidance from the various government agencies, with a particular focus on the rules for remote I-9 completion
- Discover best practices for managing remote I-9 completion, including specialized training, management oversight, and communication templates
- Develop a standard operating procedure (SOP) for remote I-9 completion that takes into account the use of smart electronic I-9 tools
