Employers Have Until July 31, 2022, to Update I-9s
DHS adopted the temporary policy in response to the difficulties many individuals experienced with renewing documents during the COVID-19 pandemic. Now that document-issuing authorities have reopened and/or provided alternatives to in-person renewals, DHS ended this flexibility May 1, 2022, employers must only accept unexpired List B documents.
If an employee presented an expired List B document between May 1, 2020, and April 30, 2022, employers are required to update their Forms I-9 by July 31, 2022. See table below for update requirements.

|Is no longer employed.||No action is required.|
|The List B document was auto extended by the issuing authority, so it was unexpired when presented.||No action is required because the document was unexpired when presented.|
