In March 2020, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) issued revised guidance on I-9 compliance in light of employer office closures around the country due to COVID-19. After extending this temporary guidance for 30 days in May, DHS has once again extended it an additional 30 days. The expiration date for these accommodations is now July 19.

This guidance only applies to employers and workplaces that are operating 100% remotely due to COVID-19. See the original Inside Business Immigration blog post for more information.

ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) has also granted the final extension relative to notices of inspection (NOIs) served on employers in March 2020. Employers who were served NOIs by ICE during the month of March 2020 and had not already responded have an additional extension of 30 days beyond the initially granted 60-day extension.
