The new E-Verify process affects everybody, you too! 

 Emily has remote employees in multiple states and her company is growing, she is concerned about the USCIS ending of the Covid-19 flexibilities ending in regard to remote employee verification.  Good news for Emily, USCIS has created a new form, here is how it works. Emily can feel secure about compliance and avoiding an audit.  

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration services updated Employment Eligibility Verification also known as Form I-9 on August 1, 2023.  The previous revision took place in 2020 to allow employers to inspect and verify documents remotely due to the Covid-19 emergency. When President Biden officially ended the Covid-19 crisis on May 11, 2023, there were concerns by companies who had adapted to a changing remote based workforce that remote verification would disappear. The latest updates took effect on August 1, 2023.
