On March 20th, DHS deferred the physical examination requirement of work authorization documents for Form I-9.? This allowed employers to inspect Section 2 documents via video link, fax, or email, as long as specific notation is entered in the “Additional Information” field on Section 2.? You can find our news alert on the initial guidance here.


Due to continued precautions related to COVID-19, DHS extended this flexibility for another 30 days to August 19th.


If you have any questions on how to complete the Form I-9 during these times, please contact your Graham Adair representative.
