Certiphi’s John Mazzeo Published in ASHHRA’s Leading HR Magazine

Certiphi Screening's Associate General Counsel and employment eligibility law expert, John Mazzeo, evaluates the latest Form I-9 completion trends in the Winter 2023 issue of ASHHRA's HR Pulse.

Since August 2023 eligible employers in the United States have had the option to complete the document inspection and review process of the Form I-9 via live video conference. In his article "Video Enabled: Evaluating New I-9 Completion Procedures," John provides a comprehensive exploration of virtual Form I-9 completion, covering:

  • Requirements to use this new procedure;
  • Benefits of virtual Form I-9 verification; and
  • Considerations regarding possible downsides of this new completion method.

Health care organizations should carefully consider if the switch to virtual Form I-9 completion is right for them by weighing the advantages and disadvantages.

Certiphi Screening has covered this topic in depth and has been on top of this revolutionary development in Form I-9 compliance since even before its inception. HR Pulse is only available to ASHHRA members; non-members who are interested in reading more about this topic can consult one of our many publications on the subject, such as our:
