In the 2018 era of heightened immigration enforcement, a focus on compliance and proactive management of immigration programs and foreign national employees is essential.
The Trump Administration has made immigration enforcement and the restriction of immigration to the United States a high priority. Most of the US immigration headlines relate to the methods the Administration is using to deter immigrants without a legal immigration status from seeking to enter the United States, including asylum seekers and unskilled migrants. The Administration is also making changes to the approach and rules relating to the world of business immigration. For those who manage the immigration programs of US employers that sponsor foreign nationals for temporary work visas and permanent residence (“green card” status), the stakes have never been higher, because the risks to employers and their foreign workers have never been higher.
In this two-part webinar series, senior members of Mintz Levin’s Immigration Practice will provide best practices in light of the ever-tightening US immigration environment. Topics will include DHS site visit preparation, record keeping strategies, and internal policy considerations.
Part I: Keeping DHS in Your Sights: Site Visits & Record Keeping topics will include:
- Record-keeping tips for H-1B, PERM-based permanent residence applications, and STEM OPT Extensions
