Hot Topics in Immigration Law: From COVID-19 Challenges to Post-H-1B Lottery Woes
Join us every other month for “Immigration Insights” – our global immigration webinar series designed to keep you up to date on hot topics in immigration law.
The first quarter of 2020 has presented employers looking to acquire and retain foreign nationals a number of challenges – some of which we see each year, but others that are unprecedented surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic. In particular, employers with U.S. operations are dealing with travel bans, closed borders, and employees whose work authorizations in the U.S. are expiring but who cannot safely return home, all while working to protect their workforces and maintain business continuity. Join Fisher Phillips immigration partner David Jones for a webinar on the key immigration issues employers need to keep top of mind as we move in to Q2 2020. David will provide an overview of the current issues facing employers and provide helpful insights on managing the ever-changing developments. Topics will include, among others:
- What if my H-1B employees must now work remotely from home?
- What will happen to my foreign national’s immigration status if they are stuck outside the U.S.?
- How can we continue to complete Form I-9 if employees are working remotely?
- You were not selected for the H-1B lottery – now what? Alternative options for employers looking to acquire and retain foreign nationals
