Partner Laura J. Mazel Presents CLE Webinar on the Intersection of Export Controls and Immigration
January 23, 2012
In this on demand webinar through CLE.com, partner Laura Mazel and colleague George Tuttle discuss the federal regulations to step up government enforcement of export control rules that went into effect earlier this year. All employers obtaining visas for professional foreign workers must certify the employer is in compliance with export control rules. Employers must know if they are covered by export control laws and determine if they need a license to release sensitive data to foreign nationals.
The regulations mean employment lawyers, HR, immigration lawyers, and export control specialists must work together to ensure a company has properly understood the regulations and filed the appropriate paperwork, and on a regular basis. Such forms are filed under penalty of perjury, typically by nonlawyers, and so require counsel's input and supervision.
