Form I-9s and Other Immigration Issues in Light of COVID-19: USCIS’ Modifications to Remote Employment Verification, E-Verify, and More - On-Demand

Webinar now available On-Demand.

WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn how to comply with USCIS’ modifications to remote employment verification requirements, E-Verify and more.

The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has temporarily modified the verification process of employment eligibility and E-Verify during the COVID-19 crisis.

To take advantage of the modified employment verification process, employers must have a Form I-9 remote document review policy in place. This is coupled with the fact that recently a new Form I-9 must be used by May 1, 2020, so employers are scrambling to understand all of their current compliance obligations for completing, correcting, and verifying employment eligibility on the Form I-9 while dealing with the pandemic the world currently faces.

And, that’s not all: Many employers have questions about the impact COVID-19 has work visa-related issues concerning unemployment compensation and more.

Use this on-demand webinar when two skilled immigration attorneys on the front lines of helping clients operate under this temporary normal will share the latest information on how to stay on top of Form I-9 and other immigration-related issues in light of COVID-19.

After attending this webinar, you will understand how to:

  • Comply with USCIS’ newly released remote employment verification policy requirements 
  • Practice ‘social distancing’ with respect to getting the information you need to comply with Form I-9 requirements using e-signatures—and more 
  • Manage reverification issues
  • Legally act if you uncover SSN inconsistencies or if the documents presented do not reasonably appear to be genuine
  • Properly correct Form I-9 mistakes 
  • Recognize the practical impact of USCIS’ temporary modification to E-Verify 
  • Address other pressing immigration-related issues such as whether a K-1 visa holder get unemployment compensation if their job is cut as a result of COVID-19
  • And more!
