There are many different kinds of immigration issues, including work, student, and tourist visas, asylum claims, legal permanent residents, and out-of-status visitors. None of these buckets have been untouched by rapid changes to immigration policy under the current administration. From changes to the USCIS Mission Statement to a proliferation of workplace raids, immigration practitioners - and all attorneys with clients impacted by immigration policy, including labor and employment lawyers - have needed to stay on their toes at all times.In this program, Jackson Lewis principal Amy Peck will review recent changes to immigration policies, with a focus on employer-side issues that practitioners should be watching for in the next year, including H-1B visa changes, no-match letters, issues with treaty employees, and the industries most likely to be targeted by immigration audits.

Thank you, not my area of law, but excellent and interesting presentation from such prominent person in this field. Thanks to Ms. Peck and Lawline for providing such high caliber CLE interactive opportunities. (PS: And I actually LOVE the humidity inflected hair, wonderful!)
An excellent CLE to get updated on the quickly occurring changes in immigration.
Excellent presentation but the complexity of it requires at least two hours even to wet newbies' beaks. She did a great job w the time allowed her
