Compliance with U.S. immigration laws demands constant vigilance by employers. From the upper echelon of any organization, through and including the rank and file, U.S. companies must employ lawful and non-discriminatory practices in the screening and hiring of employees. With immigration reform now attracting heightened scrutiny from Congress, the Obama administration, the media, and the electorate, employers are facing new challenges as a major restructuring of the legislative and legal infrastructure looms.

Topics to be discussed include:
• Compliance Requirements for Employers
• Consequences of corporate restructuring on foreign national employees
• Preference visas in employment based immigration
• President Obama’s Deferred Action Program (DACA with I-831D)
• Form I-9 updates
• Policies to follow including Handbook for Employers (M-274), the USCIS website and more
• Provisional Hardship Waiver using I-601
• Recruitment cycles
• Wage issues
• HR handling of hires and discrimination
• Fines and Disciplinary Actions

As the nation confronts a new round of legislative initiatives, join us on June 19, 2013 at 2 p.m. and benefit from the insights of our panel of experts during the complimentary CLE Webinar, Immigration Reform and the Workplace.
