Demystifying Business Immigration Law and Compliance for U.S. Employers


U.S. employers constantly face a confusing web of immigration-related issues, including heightened enforcement of both federal and state immigration laws. The number of compliance investigations and audits has increased dramatically the past few years. High-tech, healthcare, and international companies in particular face increasing challenges in securing international talent and keeping them globally mobile. Employers who use H-1B, L-1 and other U.S. visas are facing more denials, scrutiny, and investigation. This webinar features a panel of national immigration experts from across the U.S. who will provide guidance and offer best practices on the most critical immigration issues facing employers today:

  • I-9 compliance audits and state laws mandating the use of E-Verify
  • Customs & Border Protection (CBP): implementation of the Electronic I-94 system
  • H-1Bs and Labor Condition Applications: trends, processing, and compliance
  • Multinational and Treaty Investor/Trader Visa applicants: Updates on E registration and blanket L Visa petitions; trends in USCIS L-1A/L-1B adjudication; and L site visits
  • Green card processing trends: the surge in PERM audits and continuing issues with educational equivalencies

Who Should Attend?

The webinar is an invitation-only event exclusively for clients of ELA member law firms.  The information presented will be of particular interest to:
