This training session will address compliance requirements for the employment of foreign professionals on student and H-1B visas, and will explore some alternatives to avoid the risks and pitfalls of that visa category, including options for employing professionals in Canada.

Why You Should Attend

Competition for talent is greater than ever, especially in STEM occupations, and US employers continue to rely on attracting and retaining foreign professionals. The challenges of navigating complex immigration regulations also continue amid ever-changing geopolitical environments.

The webinar will help attendees understand which companies may be at a higher risk of being targeted by the federal government for non-compliance with H-1B regulations.

The speakers will help them develop recruiting policies with respect to foreign workers, and discuss how to abide by rules concerning wages, working conditions, and notification. Finally, attendees will learn about other visa options that may be available, and how to avoid anti-discrimination violations during the recruiting process.
