2017 brought many changes to immigration, and 2018 promises to continue this trend. The business community faces ongoing challenges related to international travel, longer processing times and increased scrutiny on petitions, with much of this increased enforcement framed as protecting U.S. workers. Business immigration attorneys anticipate new announcements that may impact numerous employment-based visa categories, as well as timing and travel requirements for foreign workers. Employers who plan to hire from abroad will need to adapt quickly in order to remain compliant and meet business objectives.
This course, taught by Julie Muniz and Ethan Kaufman, Partners at Fragomen, will review potential upcoming changes from this Administration, and how they could affect employers with foreign talent in their U.S. workforce.
