New federal regulations governing the use of electronic I-9 solutions contain good news for businesses interested in automating the administratively challenging employment verification process. The Department of Homeland Security released their Final Rule on July 22, and it goes into effect today, August 23, 2010.
Gideon Taylor has taken great pains to ensure that our GT Paperless I-9™ product was fully compliant with the Interim Rule released in 2006. With this Final Rule, several stringent requirements are relaxed or eliminated, allowing the GT Paperless I-9™ process to be more streamlined.
The GT Paperless I-9™ will retain the functionality to print confirmations and audit views as optional features. These changes make the argument for electronic I-9 processes even more compelling.
