There will be no more extensions! Employers will have 30 days to review all the documents used during the Covid Pandemic flexibility decision March 20, 2020.
While the emergency COVID-19-related I-9 flexibility is ending, DHS is still considering alternative procedures for examining I-9 documents. On August 18, 2022, DHS issued a proposed rule on this topic and is reviewing all the comments it received.
