Retaining Your Foreign Workforce - Eryne Walvekar and Radhika Mehta will provide a forecast of the changes to Permanent Residence.  This will include how the Administration may change Labor Certifications, Immigrant Petitions, and Adjustment of Status applications, which may potentially change the lives of essential existing talent.  Immigration program management requires a combination of great process and creativity to ensure your immigrant employees feel safe in these complex times while instead of which also staying compliant with increasing government scrutiny.  They will touch on creative solutions gained from processing thousands of cases for companies of all sizes.
