Description of the Topic:
Many Employers have been impacted by the new Immigration regulations affecting H-1B Visas and other Visas when hiring foreign workers to meet the needs of their business. Changes in requirements has slowed the ability of companies to hire employees in “Specialty Occupations” which is one of the highly sought visa category by Employers seeking highly skilled foreign workers to meet the advanced skills needed for certain positions. It is important to note that H-1B visas are not self-petition but sponsored by the Employer.
The US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), is responsible for monitoring these visas, currently has an annual cap of 85,000 visas awarded, 20,000 of which are reserved for advanced degree holders with specific knowledge related to the position.
Employers who navigate the visa application process find themselves challenged to manage those employees who are at risk of losing sponsorship because of the cap and because of stringent regulations.
Why you must attend this training:
No Matter which side of the political spectrum you are on, if you have employees who are already part of the H-1B visa process, you and the foreign worker are impacted. This webinar will demonstrate the Immigration Visa process and the many hoops Employers have to jump through to mitigate the challenges. Moreover, employee relations issues like performance, discipline and termination can impact the Employers.
For those Employers who are not aware of the Immigration visa process, this webinar will teach Employers on the many myths and facts of the Immigration regulations and how the new Immigration guidelines can impact society norms and the countries ability to continue to be a beacon of multi-cultural sharing.

- What are the qualifications for eligibility with each visa designation?

- What is the criteria for Employers to establish a valid Employer Sponsorship relationship?
- What is the labor condition application (LCA)
- There are different types of visas with specific guidelines and regulations impacting both Employer and employees
- What specific Immigration forms and identification verification do employees need to have to be eligible for visas?
- What are the timelines of the Immigration visas application and how much does it cost the Employer?
- How are International Attorneys handling these cases and the cap indicated by the USCIS?
- What documents need to be submitted to be considered based on the Immigration application?
