The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has announced a 30-day extension of the flexibilities in rules related to Form I-9 compliance granted earlier this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

On March 19, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced that it would defer the physical presence requirements associated with the Employment Eligibility Verification (Form I-9) under section 274A of the Immigration and Nationality Act. This policy was implemented for 60 days and has been twice extended for additional 30-day periods.
