In light of the impending expiration of COVID-19 temporary flexibilities, Clear I-9, a trusted provider of Form I-9 compliance solutions, commits to cost-effective solutions for meeting Form I-9 requirements. Using Clear I-9’s easy to use mobile software, employers can meet the new compliance requirements and avoid expensive fines for less than $10 an I-9.
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has announced that the temporary flexibilities for Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification, granted due to COVID-19, will come to an end on July 31, 2023. As a result, employers must conduct in-person physical document inspections for employees whose documents were previously inspected remotely by August 30, 2023. However, for employees continuing to work remotely, employers may rely on an authorized agent for in-person verification.
Clear I-9's electronic verification system provides employers with a platform to conveniently capture in-person verification by an authorized agent, facilitating compliance with the new requirements. Through Clear I-9’s dedicated portal for remote authorized I-9 representatives, employers can safely provide access to anyone outside of your organization to help complete Section 2 of the I-9 without the need for them to login to your company's dashboard, all while providing an intuitive experience.
