Télécharger pour lire hors ligne

U.S. businesses are consistently faced with the challenge of finding qualified candidates to fill highly skilled positions. The demand for the best talent continues to be fierce and many employers are turning to foreign talent already in the U.S. on a visa. Join Immigration Attorney, Jason Finkelman, for a discussion on how U.S. businesses can find success navigating the immigration system to hire foreign employees who are already in the U.S. with a visa or in the green card process.

Learn when employers can hire existing visa holders, when these candidates are able to change jobs, steps involved for employers and visa holders alike, and the timeline for processing and approving the transfer of employment. This session is advanced and is geared towards human resources leaders, recruiters, and business leaders who oversee and/or are involved in the hiring process.

Notes de l'éditeur

  • Buy American, Hire American - Trump directed USCIS and DOS to use thier power to transform how they adjudicate U.S. immigration benefits.

    Increased Scrutiny
    RFE increase
    Extension visas – no deference
    In person interview requirements for 485
    Computer Programmers - no longer presumption of bachelor’s degree for H1B specialty occupation

    Extreme Vetting of visa applications – stricter screening requirements (including social media)
