DHS To End Expired List B Identity Document Policy
By Kevin M. Mosher • Apr 8, 2022
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has announced it is ending the COVID-19 Temporary Policy for List B Identity Documents which allowed employers to accept expired List B identity documents for I-9 purposes. Beginning May 1, 2022, Employers will no longer be able to accept expired List B Documents.
Beginning on May 1, 2022, employers can only accept unexpired List B documents going forward. If a current employee presented an expired List B document between May 1, 2020 and April 20,2022, the employer must update their Forms I-9 by July 31, 2022. No action is required if the employee is no longer employed with the company or if the List B document was automatically extended by the issuing authority (meaning it was unexpired when presented).
