Form I-9 Policy Changes & New Form Proposed 



The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) recently ended its temporary policy that allowed employers to accept expired List B documents used to complete Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification.


The policy to allow expired documents was put into place during the COVID-19 pandemic to help those facing challenges with obtaining document renewals. As document-issuing authorities have reopened to in-person renewals, this flexibility has ended. As of May 1, 2022, employers must only accept unexpired List B documents.

Updated Documentation Required

The DHS has also stipulated that employers are required to update Form I-9 by July 31, 2022, for employee’s whose Form I-9 was completed between May 1, 2020, and April 30, 2022, with a List B document that expired on or after March 1, 2020.

DHS Proposes New Form I-9

The current version of the Form I-9 is set to expire on October 31, 2022. The Department of Homeland Security seeks comments on its proposed changes to the form. Possible changes include compressing sections 1 and 2 to reduce paper use and updating the acceptable List C documents. The sixty-day comment period for this change expires on May 31, 2022.

EEO-1 Component 1 Data Collection Extended


The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) opened the EEO-1 Component 1 data collection on April 12, 2022. Originally the EEOC announced that employers had to submit data by May 17, 2022. On May 18, 2022, the EEOC announced that the deadline was extended, and filers now have until June 21, 2022, to submit and certify their 2021 EEO-1 Component 1 Report.

Filers can visit the dedicated EEO-1 Component 1 website to access the online filing system, view updates, and scan additional resources. As the EEOC continues to modernize the data collection process and the online filing system, they have launched a Filer Support Team Message Center, which offers filers additional support.

Who Does This Affect?

All private-sector employers with 100 or more employees, and federal contractors with 50 or more employees meeting specific criteria, must submit demographic workforce data, including data by race/ethnicity, sex, and job categories. The filing by eligible employers of the EEO-1 Component 1 Report is required under section 709(c) of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as amended, 42 U.S.C. § 2000e-8(c), and 29 CFR 1602.7-.14 and 41 CFR 60-1.7(a)


Filers can visit the EEO-1 Component 1 website for the latest filing updates, helpful resources, and additional information.


DOL Promotes Workplace Mental Health

Mental Health Awareness Month

May is Mental Health Awareness month and the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) recently unveiled the Mental Health at Work: What Can I Do? campaign to educate employers and workers on fostering a mental health-friendly workplace.

Mental health is a growing national concern. In fact, during the pandemic, approximately 1 in 5 U.S. adults reported having a mental health condition.* The campaign is designed to help inform individuals about how they can personally promote mental health and foster well-being in their workplaces. Actions include setting a positive tone for inclusivity and being supportive of colleagues.

"As America recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic, mental-health-friendly workplaces will be more important than ever," U.S. Secretary of Labor Marty Walsh said during the SHRM Workforce Policy Conference. "This timely public education campaign reminds us that we all have a role to play and that we all benefit from flexible, supportive workplaces that promote good mental health."*

The nationwide campaign features video and audio public service announcements. The DOL has made available additional resources for employers, including posters, an outreach toolkit, and a mental health resource guide. Employers interested in learning more about supporting employees with mental health concerns should visit the DOL campaign’s website. The site includes links to download campaign materials and other employer resources.


Creating a workplace supportive of mental health and illness is easier than it seems. CBIZ has put together  5 Ways HR Can Support Employee’s Mental Health.
