Three Reasons Remote I-9 Verifications with E-Verify are a Game Changer

TrendSource helped develop Remote I-9 Verifications over a decade ago, helping evolve compliance into the remote and hybrid work era. Recently, we added E-Verify as an optional addition to any standard I-9 order, giving employers even greater flexibility, certainty, and security when it comes to their compliance needs.

But what are the advantages of Remote I-9 Verifications and why are employers increasingly turning to TrendSource to rapidly verify employment eligibility?

Today, we are going to break down three reasons that Remote I-9 Verifications with E-Verify are a game changer.

Reason 1: Remote I-9 Verifications Rapidly Onboard New Hires, wherever they Reside

Form I9-1

The first reason is also the most obvious: Remote I-9 Verifications happen wherever the New Hire happens to be. A TrendSource Field Agent arranges to meet with New Hires at a location of their choosing. This means that a company based in Los Angeles, for example, could rapidly onboard a New Hire located in Saratoga, or anywhere else really.

Look, there’s no way around it, I-9s are outdated. The pen-to-paper form factor and in-person requirements simply were not conceived with this era of remote and hybrid work in mind. Remote I-9 Verifications bring employment compliance into the digital age, rapidly onboarding employees across geographic distances. This obviously adds efficiency and reach to companies’ hiring initiatives.

Reason2: Remote I-9 Verifications Free Up HR Departments for More Impactful Work

I-9 Verification Services are a practical solution for any employer, not just those with remote employees. That’s because, in nearly every business, Human Resources departments assume responsibility for their company’s compliance with employment law. Thus, a large portion of HR energy is put into onboarding employees, which includes Form I-9.

Particularly in companies with high turnover such as service and hospitality industries, HR teams can find themselves in a constant hiring and onboarding cycle.

Outsourcing this rote function with Remote I-9 Verifications frees HR teams up, then, for more impactful and transformational work.

Reason 3: Remote I-9 Verifications Help Businesses Quickly Meet Evolving DHS Guidelines

With COVID-19 outbreak in 2020, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) paused the in-person verification requirement for Section 2 of Form I-9. This means that, temporarily, companies were able to remotely complete Section 2 of Form I-9 with their New Hire over a video conference platform, essentially verifying documents on a computer screen.

This suspension will not last forever, however. Ultimately, the provisional I-9s completed during this period will need to be redone in person.

If a company were to handle this undertaking on their own, the manpower and organizational force required could be crippling. TrendSource can rapidly turnaround bulk I-9 orders to help companies meet this requirement.
