Weaver Schlenger Webinar: Developing Immigration Policies
September 25, 2020
Whether you employ one or hundreds of foreign national employees, it is best to have written policies in place to address questions from your candidates, hiring managers, and government auditors. Policies will provide consistency and predictability for employees, and protection and guidance for the employer. In addition, with workplace changes due to COVID, policies can reflect legal requirements and answer questions about what costs an employer will cover (for example, dependent fees).
In this webinar, Weaver Schlenger draws upon our extensive experience representing a broad spectrum of U.S. employers to discuss many important policy topics, including:
- Ad-hoc versus formal policies
- Centralized versus decentralized decisions
- How many attempts at H-1B lottery?
- Costs of travel and family members (when travel is allowed)
- When to start permanent residence
- Who pays for premium processing
- Sharing costs when multiple strategies are pursued
- Withdrawal of H-1Bs and other best practices following termination
This webinar is geared toward in-house lawyers and professionals in human resources, recruiting and staffing who are responsible for the immigration function within their organizations.
