The employment-visa system is facing a revolution

ALERT: If your organization hires foreign workers, you need to understand the dramatic changes occurring in the complex employment-based visa system. Major new restrictions and new deadlines—especially to H-1B visas—are being finalized by the Trump administration (and challenged in court). And a shift of power in Washington could further impact your ability to bring highly skilled foreign nationals to work for you next year.

Employment-Based Visas: New Rules and Deadlines for 2021 Hiring is an incredibly timely look at the options available for employers to bring essential foreign-born talent to the United States— for short-term visits, mid-term assignments and permanent residency.

This in-depth webinar recording is led by a true immigration law expert and Washington insider. Attorney Kevin Lashus is a former assistant chief counsel at the Department of Homeland Security, Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
