October 23, 2015 -- Immigration Basics: Nonimmigrant Visas and Permanent Residence Overview
October 2, 2015
Whether you are hiring full-time employees, summer interns, or relocating an overseas executive to the US, there are numerous visa options available. What's the difference between an L-1 visa and an E-3 visa? What happens when the H-1B cap has been reached? What if that executive will accept the job offer only if her spouse can work in the US, too?
In this webinar, we will provide an overview of several employment-based nonimmigrant visa categories. We will discuss: basic requirements of each nonimmigrant visa; timing; spouse work authorization; and government adjudication trends. In addition, this webinar will discuss the basic requirements of sponsoring an employee for permanent residence status.
This webinar is geared toward in-house lawyers and professionals in human resources, recruiting and staffing who possess limited knowledge in immigration.
