2020 has presented employers looking to acquire and retain foreign nationals numerous new and unfamiliar challenges as it relates to immigration compliance, including Presidential Proclamations and I-9 compliance during COVID-19.
Join Fisher Phillips’s Global Immigration Practice Group co-chair Shanon Stevenson for a webinar on the key immigration compliance issues employers need to keep top of mind as employers look to bring their foreign national employees back to work after COVID-19 related lay-offs and furloughs. Furthermore, Shanon will discuss the impact of Presidential Proclamations. President Trump just issued a Proclamation to further restrict legal immigration, preventing employers from bringing new H-1B, H-2B, L-1A, L-1B, and J-1 workers from abroad into the United States. The Proclamation, which went into effect June 24, 2020, bars new temporary visas for foreign workers and their dependents and extends the prior suspension of immigrant visas for those applying from abroad through 2020.
