Immigration policies are in flux in Washington D.C. This uncertainty will impact employers in 2018 and beyond. What will happen to the “Dreamers” or the recipients of temporary protected status? Will work or investment visas become harder to obtain? Immigration law specialist Richard Tasoff will discuss the trending immigration topics that affect employers, including:
- The status of DACA, TPS and other legal residents who may lose their legal status and what options exist for employees and employers
- Changes to work visa issuance
- I-9 compliance and auditing
- Categories of foreigners and who can legally work
- Sponsoring a foreigner for a temporary work visa
- Transferring a manager or executive to the U.S. from a foreign affiliate
- Sponsoring a foreigner for permanent residence
