On May 1, 2022, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) ended the temporary policy that allowed employees to present an expired List B Identity Document used to complete Form I-9. DHS adopted this temporary policy to address employees’ COVID-related challenges in renewing a driver’s license, state ID card, or other Form I-9, List B Identity document. DHS recommends that employees present the replacement of the actual document that was expired. Otherwise, the employee may present a different List A document (which establishes both identity and employment authorization) or a different List B document (which establishes identity only).Form I-9 Updates are NOT required if the employee is no longer employed as of May 1, 2022, OR if the employee presented a List B Identity document that was auto-extended by the issuing authority on the date the List B Identity document was presented by the employee.
