Completing I-9s for Remote Workers

(This came to me from Jodi Heisler, a fellow HR peer - Steve)

We hire 80% of our employees remotely.  With the new I-9 guidelines coming out, we need to know what others are doing who hire remotely or what companies they are looking or are using for I-9 verifications.

I'd appreciate any insight on this.

Thanks, Jodi

  • Hi, Jodi - my company is 100% remote and we are utilizing the 'designated agent' option.  Employees are given clear instructions to have page 2 completed by someone in their household or a notary public.  So far, it's worked out very well.  

    Also, see the recent announcements on the updated I-9 form and how the use of e-Verify may allow for continued remote document inspection.  

  • Hi Jodi, this article might have some additional guidance!

    We use the eVerify method as detailed by Rebecca Weyer above.

  • Yes, as Sarah Bennett said,  to use the alternative method, you have to use E-Verify and be in good standing! Hope that helps!
