HireRight Launches Virtual I-9 Solution

HireRight’s Virtual I-9 Service enables employers to remotely verify their candidates’ identity and employment authorization documents via live video call

HireRight Holdings Corporation, a leading provider of global background screening services and workforce management solutions, today announced the launch of its new Virtual I-9 solution. With HireRight’s Virtual I-9 Service, candidates no longer have to present their documentation in-person for verification by their prospective employer or their authorized representative, which can be inconvenient, time-consuming, and could ultimately delay a candidate’s start date.

HireRight’s Virtual I-9 Service, powered by HireRight’s strategic partnership with GryphonHR, is designed to support employers who wish to use the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) Alternative Procedure, which allows eligible employers to complete Form I-9 Section 2 verifications and Supplement B reverifications via a video call with the employee.

HireRight’s Virtual I-9 Service enables employers to complete the U.S. employment authorization verification process remotely, using a large network of U.S.-based authorized representatives to verify candidate documentation via live video call.

“Remote working continues to play an important role for many businesses, often enabling them to search farther and wider for the best candidates,” said Jim Daxner, Chief Product Officer at HireRight. “But onboarding new remote hires, including verifying their authorization to work in the U.S., is not always a quick and easy process for the new hires or their employers. HireRight’s Virtual I-9 Service can help support an efficient onboarding process, so that businesses can quickly conduct their hiring due diligence and get new employees starting their roles sooner.”

HireRight’s Virtual I-9 Service is available to new and existing HireRight customers who participate in E-Verify. The service provides employers and their candidates a quick and easy alternative to in-person document verification that can be completed no matter where they are located. Additionally, HireRight offers an I-9 Remote service, which supports off-site, in-person Form I-9 Section 2 or Supplement B completion.
