Businesses will be forced to adjust to a new era of restrictions due to the recent spate of terrorist attacks and terror threats. Some countries, such as Australia, made immediate changes in immigration law. Others countries and alliances, such as the US and the EU, proposed new laws and processes to control borders and are starting to more closely scrutinize individuals from countries of interest and/or travelers who have visited countries of interest.

Join BAL Attorneys Stephanie LewinGina Werth and Partner Vernadette Antonio, along with other HR, Global Mobility and legal professionals for a spirited, collaborative discussion on:

  • Our current environment: A review of recent and proposed changes in law and practice after the recent terrorist activities in France and the US; including the recent US bill regarding travelers to and dual citizens of Iraq, Syria, Iran and Sudan
  • The impact these changes will have on business travel
  • The impact these changes will have on short- and long-term assignments
  • What corporations can do when sending employees on assignment, including resources available to ensure corporations are aware of changes that could impact the security of their employees abroad

Both Ms. Lewin and Ms. Werth have a broad range of experience with global assignments and international business mobility. In addition to their regular immigration law practice, Ms. Lewin is a former Immigration and Naturalization Service District Adjudications Officer, and Ms. Werth was formerly with the US Department of State and served internationally as a Consular Officer.

This briefing is designed for HR and Global Mobility professionals and in-house lawyers and paralegals. It will offer insights for both those who are new to the field of global mobility and immigration law, as well as seasoned veterans looking for clarity, advice and benchmarking on complex situations. We look forward to meeting with you!
