Employment-based Immigration: Talent Acquisition, Retention & Compliance under a New Administration

Mintz Levin


Date: May 24, 2017

Time: 4:00AM - 6:30AM

Location: San Diego, CA


This seminar, featuring Mintz Levin's Kevin McNamara, Jennifer Rubin, and Bill Coffman, will address urgent immigration issues and their impact on employers.
2016 brought several significant changes in the options available to foreign national employees and their families. In addition, President Trump and his administration have promised more restrictionist policies and increased worksite enforcement in 2017 — suggesting that employer compliance with immigration regulations will be more important than ever.
Designed for in-house counsel, immigration specialists, HR professionals, talent managers, and other stakeholders, this seminar will review changes affecting the hiring and continued employment of foreign nationals and provide guidance for compliance in an era of increased enforcement. Our panel of seasoned immigration and employment attorneys will cover key changes in immigration law, share employer best practices, and predict developments on the horizon to help you plan effective compliance strategies.


  • Worksite visit preparation, including recordkeeping requirements
  • New, highly-skilled worker regulations and how they help you and your employees
  • Immigration consequences of hiring, terminations, and mergers & acquisitions
  • I-9, E-Verify, and H-1B compliance
