Employers that use electronic systems to complete I-9 verification forms for new hires sometimes streamline the system by pre-populating employee information on Section I of the I-9 with information pulled from the company’s HR software. But last year, the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) signaled that such pre-population is not permissible.
What’s new? ICE has now apparently switched course on that opinion, announcing that the agency now takes no position on the pre-population of information by electronic I-9 programs.
