Good afternoon to SHRM leadership in FL,

I’m Dave, a Sr. Form I-9 and E-Verify SME speaker that works in the very USCIS division, in Washington, D.C., that houses both programs.  Due to COVID-19, I’m being flooded with questions in regards to Form I-9 and E-Verify compliance given the recent announcements released from ICE (Immigration Custom Enforcement), the agency that conducts I-9 audits, and USCIS’s Verification Division where E-Verify has recently extended timeframe for taking action to resolve Tentative Nonconfirmations (TNC).   

With this said, I will be conducting a pair of one-hour webinars (Apr 17th @ 10:00am EDT  /  Apr 23rd @ 1:00pm EDT)  where I will cover the updates, due to COVID-19, to the I-9 and E-Verify. No registration needed – simply click on the link below about 10-15 minutes prior to the start time.  That’s it!   Note:  we do not submit our presentations for HRCI or SHRM credits.

Session Highlights:

  • DHS announces flexibility in requirements related to Form I-9 compliance due to COVID-19  
  • Expired drivers licenses extended – use on Form I-9
  • E-Verify extends timeframe for taking action to resolve Tentative Nonconfirmations  
  • Any other updates that have been released by the date of each session


After covering the above items, I’ll cover the following…

  • When must you start using Form I-9’s new version released on Jan 31, 2020
  • What blocks require an entry of N/A is an entry is not made
  • What address go in each address block (this may surprise many attendees)
  • Can a Preparer or Translator also complete Section 2
  • What is the correct way to make a correction on Form I-9 and who can make them
  • Can you use abbreviations
  • How to complete Form I-9 for remote hires
  • Which documents are not to be reverified
  • .....and more


Again, these webinars are free!  I’ve been a speaker on these topics for 12 years and conducted well over 650 presentations around the country via live and webinar platforms to groups that include HR, Compliance, Payroll and Attorneys.     

Take care – stay safe,
