What do you do when your recruiting staff tells you they’ve hired a Foreign National who must start pronto?

Hiring foreign talent and complying with work authorization rules can be a nuanced, complex, and confusing issue. We want to help you understand the key types of U.S. work permits and permanent residence processes so that your business can make well-informed, cost effective and efficient business decisions when hiring foreign talent. 

Join BAL Partner Petra Tang and Associates Anna Nguyen, Nassim Mahzoon and Shehryar Chaudhry for an instructive session on the most common visa types and green card processes, basic program management, the multifaceted PERM Labor Certification process as well as alternatives to testing the labor market. 

Our session will help you:

  • Understand the different types of Non-Immigrant Visas available.
  • Understand the multiple paths to a Green Card and which paths are best suited for your business.
  • Understand basic program management, such as what to have in place for an unexpected site visit.

This briefing is designed for HR professionals, in-house lawyers and paralegals. It will offer insights for those who are experienced as well as new to the field of Immigration Law. We look forward to meeting with you!
