How to Complete I-9 for Remote Employees

With more and more employees opting for remote and hybrid work, companies are asking themselves how to complete form I-9 for remote employees.

Recall that the I-9 is required for every employee in the United States because it documents employment eligibility. This means that it is something every single employer in the country must worry about. Everybody needs to stay in compliance with federal laws to remain successful, and I-9 is a key part of every onboarding process.

But with employees working remotely, how can employers complete I-9s for remote employees?

How to Complete I-9 for Remote Employees

The answer is quite simple. TrendSource, a pioneer in compliance management and documentation, offers Remote I-9 Verifications.

Remote I-9 Verifications help employers complete and manage I-9 Verifications for remote employees.

And the best part is they can conveniently be ordered online. Once an employer provides TrendSoruce with some basic information and a credit card, they can order Remote I-9 Verifications at their convenience. Anytime they need to onboard a remote employee, it is only a few clicks away.

How to Verify I-9 Documents for Remote Employees

The Department of Homeland Security requires employers to inspect and verify I-9 documents in-person to complete form I-9. This is obviously made difficult with remote employees, which is why TrendSource Field Agents inspect and photograph the documents in Remote I-9 Verifications.

In response to COVID-19, DHS is currently allowing employers to onboard remote employees over a video chat, with the New Hire holding up the necessary documents to the camera. This is only a temporary policy, however, and DHS has made it clear that all I-9s completed in this fashion will need to be redone in person once the suspension is lifted.

This means that employers will be responsible for ensuring all their employees have completed an I-9 in person. But since TrendSource’s Remote I-9 Verifications are completed with the new employee, wherever they may reside, the form is completed the right way the first time and will not need to be redone when DHS lifts the suspension.
