DHS Invites Public Comment on Form I9 Proposed Rulemaking


DHS published Federal Register notice 87 FR 50786 on August 18 to invite public comments on a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM).


This proposed rule would create a framework under which the Secretary of Homeland Security could authorize alternatives to the current requirement that employers (or authorized representatives acting on an employer’s behalf) physically examine documentation presented by individuals seeking to establish identity and employment authorization for the purposes of the Form I9, Employment Eligibility Verification.


Such alternatives could be put in place through a pilot program, for some or all employers (or authorized representatives acting on an employer’s behalf), or as a temporary measure. This 60-day comment period will be open until Oct 17.
