The webinar from EMP Trust HR – a valued partner of leading global background check provider Employment Screening Resources® (ESR) – will give an overview of the tools and processes to onboard remote hires using its Form I-9 remote solution. The webinar will show how this solution can help improve new hire experience while maintaining Form I-9 compliance from any location. The webinar will discuss:

  • How to stay safe from the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak by maintaining social distancing using EMP Trust HR’s remote Form I-9 solution to onboard and manage new hires.
  • The latest updates on immigration and Form I-9 compliance.
  • Who can be an authorized representative for Section 2 of the Form I-9?
  • Best practice advice for effectively managing remote Form I-9 compliance.
  • A brief demo of the EMP Trust HR’s Form I-9 remote solution which can improve Form I-9 compliance and save time and costs when hiring remote workers.

“Coronavirus has radically changed the way employers around the world hire and screen employees and background screening firms must react accordingly,” said ESR Vice President of Strategic Growth Dawn Standerwick, who will act as one of the moderators for the webinar. “ESR wants to help EMP Trust HR inform businesses on best practices for onboarding candidates to ensure health while hiring.”

The number of remote hires has been on a significant rise, according to a blog about the webinar from EMP Trust HR. Research indicates that hiring managers anticipate approximately 38 percent of full-time employees will be working remotely in the next ten years. Nearly 57 percent of companies have incorporated a formal policy for hiring and allowing employees to work away from the office setup.

The need for remote hires has risen even more since the outbreak of COVID-19, a respiratory illness that can spread from person to person. As of March 31, 2020, the United States leads the world with more than 164,000 confirmed Coronavirus cases, according to research from Johns Hopkins University. Employers should follow guidance on how to respond to Coronavirus from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
