Immigration Law Seminars: H1-B & I-9 Compliance (Salt Lake City)

Last month, President Obama and the U.S. Senate announced sweeping changes to current immigration laws. The new proposal would legalize 11 million undocumented workers, radically change the current immigration system, and impose new obligations onto employers.

Please join us for a discussion on the implications for your business.

Visa Basics for High-Tech Foreign Workers
Healthcare, high-tech, and mining companies are increasingly turning to the global labor market to find the right talent. In 2012, U.S. employers sponsored 85,000 new H-1B workers, including many computer software developers and engineers from China and India. In preparation of the April 1st H-1B filing date, we will discuss the fundamentals of the H-1B visa process, including:

  • Jobs that qualify for the H-1B visa
  • H-1B cap and cap exempt employers
  • Recent changes in the Labor Condition Application process
  • Documents that must be retained after filing an H-1B petition
  • Transitioning H-1B workers to permanent residency
  • Legal liabilities to be aware of in the H-1B process

I-9 Audits and Investigations
How will new Congressional immigration reform affect your business? From October 2011 through June 2012 Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) issued 2,600 notices of inspection, issued 275 final orders totaling $6 million in fines, and criminally arrested 91 managers accused of violations related to employment eligibility verification. Join us for discussion on:

  • The federal I-9 immigration audit and investigation process
  • Industries targeted for immigration investigations
  • The effect that deferred action for Dream Act beneficiaries
  • Changes to current immigration enforcement based on Congressional proposals
