SHRM Requests Additional Relief for Employers during COVID-19

In a letter to The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) SHRM asked for additional relief for employers on immigration related items as businesses confront COVID-19. Among SHRM’s requests was that DHS filing deadlines from March 11 to May 11 be extended for 90 days.

Previously, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced that it would ease certain requirements for employers as they attempt to manage COVID-19. The announcement came after SHRM sent a letter to the leaders of DHS, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) asking for relief for employers on COVID-19 and related I-9 verification and visa issues.
