Description

Addressing U.S. Employment Immigration Law Changes & Seeking Temporary Employment Alternatives Abroad, Sponsored by Porter Wright


CLE Registration and Lunch - 11:15 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.

CLE Program - 12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m.

This program is preapproved for one hour of PA substantive cle credit.


Overview

With growing lists of restrictionist executive orders becoming law in the United States over the past 18 months, coupled with an antiquated system of immigration laws and partisan legislature, attorneys and human resources professionals must not only know the U.S. laws and regulations but also become well-versed in international alternatives to both short- and long-term placement of desirable employees in overseas jurisdictions while they wait to be selected in H-1B visa lottery, linger in administrative visa processing delays or USCIS adjudication, or await the U.S. legal permanent residence process to be complete.

Our panelists will address latest changes to the US immigration system and procedures, and will examine placement of employees in Mexico, Canada and overseas.


Presenters: Ellen Freeman, Porter Wright, Pavan Dhillon, Dhillon Immigration and Adrián Ojeda Cuevas, Ojeda Ojeda y Asociados
