U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) announced an

extension of flexibilities in rules related to Form I-9 (Employment

Eligibility Verification) compliance due to continued precautions

related to the COVID-19 pandemic. The policy is extended until

March 31, 2021.

About a year ago, the Department of Homeland Security deferred

physical presence requirements associated with the I-9 process. The

policy applies only to employers and workplaces operating

remotely.
