Important update on form I-9 processing

A temporary rule allowing for virtual review of Form I-9 identity documents for new employees working remotely due to COVID-19 will end when UW returns to on-site work on September 13.

Effective September 13, 2021, I-9 Coordinators must complete in-person, physical inspection of employment authorization documents previously inspected remotely within 3 business days (September 16). For student employees with an anticipated return to on-site work date of September 29, in-person review is required within three business days of that day.

I-9 Coordinators will need to meet with each active, remotely onboarded staff employee to inspect their employment verification documents in person and complete the Amend Form I-9 business process to update Section 2 of the employee’s Form I-9 following the guidance found on the I-9 completion requirements change webpage.
