Per The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) they have announced that they will defer the requirements for the employers to review the Form I-9 with new employees. This will allow for complete remote processing of the I-9.
Employers must now inspect section 2 of the form I-9 via video conference, fax, or email. Once these forms have been reviewed a copy must be received within three business days. The UMBC payroll team is developing a “DocuSign Remote Work I-9 Form”. This form will be used during the remote work period. Once the form has completed a link with additional instructions will be sent via the MyUmbc Payroll Prepare/HR work group.
