How to get Immigrants that All-Important Worker's Permit

OnDemand Webinar (92 minutes)

Understand the challenges associated with obtaining a workers permit for a foreign person, and how to overcome these challenges.The highly-politicized immigration policy landscape has created two classes of workers in the U.S. For some workers, employment in the U.S. is a very complicated process and involves significant government scrutiny. That scrutiny has intensified in recent years, leaving many foreign workers with fewer and fewer options. This topic will explore the maze of work authorization and identify key issues to consider for persons who seek work authorization in the U.S. For human resources professionals, lawyers, business owners and managers, and anyone else who encounters or addresses workforce challenges and hiring or retaining foreign workers, this information will help you navigate the process more efficiently and more effectively, with realistic expectations for short and long-term outcomes.
