This quarter's Benefits Bulletin explores COVID-19 and the workplace, the ACA's pay or play rules' statute of limitations and Form I-9.
Under guidance issued by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) on March 20, 2020, employers will not necessarily have to be in the physical presence of a new employee when verifying his or her identity as part of the I-9 Form process during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. This Legal Update provides information about the DHS' guidance.
On Jan. 31, 2020, USCIS published a new version of Form I-9: Employment Eligibility Verification. Employers have the option of initially using either the expired or the new Form I-9. However, employers must begin using the new form exclusively by May 1, 2020.
