Managing I-9 and E-Verify Obligations in 2020 and Beyond
During the past few years, HR departments across the U.S. have witnessed a significant change in Form I-9 and E-Verify practices, due in large part to the recent surge in remote employment and the government’s newfound enforcement mentality. Following the 2017 signing of President Trump’s “Buy American and Hire American” Executive Order, federal and state agencies have implemented new policies and initiatives that drastically impact employers’ Form I-9 and E-Verify processes this year and beyond.
For HR and compliance managers, this is not particularly welcome news. 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, employers are experiencing even greater scrutiny of I-9 records and policies as well as new challenges in managing a remote workforce during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
