COVID Temporary Policies for I-9 Documents to End
The Department of Homeland Security has announced that beginning May 1st, 2022, employers will no longer be permitted to accept expired documents from employees under “List B” during the I-9 Verification process. Originally, the temporary policy was put in place due to COVID-19 delays in document renewal.
What does this mean for you? If you are an employer that accepted an expired “List B” document from an employee for completion of their Form I-9 between 5/1/20 – 4/30/22, you will be required to update that employee’s Form I-9 with an unexpired “List B” document by 7/31/22.
