HR Competencies

  • HR Expertise

The workforce is increasingly diverse as American education and work  opportunities attract highly-qualified foreign workers  seeking U.S. employment. These briefing sessions provide participants with a basic understanding of the complex set of employment-based immigration benefits that can provide temporary or permanent work authorization. H-1B is the go-to place to start, and Employers Council staff attorneys will drill down on the H-1B with a class timed to get employers ready for the annual filing deadline on April 1. The second class deals with converting those temporary workers to long-term workers with lawful permanent residency processing.
