Presentation Description

President Trump seems to want to change the U.S. Immigration law landscape…


  • U.S. businesses use the H-1B visa program to employ foreign workers in specialty occupations that require the theoretical or practical application of a body of highly-specialized knowledge, including but not limited to: scientists, engineers, or computer programmers. Do employers now need to recruit U.S. workers?
  • L-1 visas are also available to employees of an international company with offices in both the United States and abroad. Are more site visits imminent?
  • The TN visa category is part of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and enables Canadian and Mexican citizens to enter the United States to engage in professional business activities on a temporary basis. Does the renegotiation of the NAFTA affect what status to choose?
  • The presentation will focus the key points of several of the aforementioned work visas programs including the Trump proposals and Executive orders and changes. minimum requirements, application process, processing timelines and other nuances associated with these classifications.

The newly implemented I-9 Form / E-Verify:

  • Every employer in the U.S. is responsible for preparing and retaining I-9 Forms. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, continues to conduct I-9 Form audits. Employers are required to maintain accurate I-9 Forms under IRCA (a law passed in 1986). ICE audits have resulted in significant fines against employers that have been found to be non-compliant. This presentation will allow HR Professionals to hear from several private attorneys that handle I-9 Form audits (and litigation) how they can avoid employment verification (I-9) preparation and retention compliance issues.


Learning Objectives

1. Explain about various types of visas for work (and for other things) in the U.S.

2. Explain how the I-9 Form needs to be prepared for workers

3. Explain how the HR Professional can establish a compliance program in their organization.
