BIG's John Mazzeo Published in Leading Florida HR Newsletter

In this month's HR Florida Newswire, BIG's Associate General Counsel and employment eligibility law expert, John Mazzeo, sheds light on significant Form I-9 and E-Verify developments.

In his latest article, "Don't get 'Chomped': Employers Must be Aware of Employment Verification Requirements," John provides a comprehensive overview of the key I-9 topics that have dominated the summer season:

  • The new Alternatives to Physical Inspection (API) rule, which allows for virtual inspection of the Form I-9 for eligible E-Verify employers in good standing;
  • The decrease of Employment Authorization Document (EAD) extensions for renewals filed after October 26, 2023; and
  • Florida's new E-Verify rule for private employers with 25 or more employees.
