This session provides 55 practice pointers to help employers understand and manage an employment-based immigration sponsorship program.

There are many factors to consider when hiring foreign nationals, such as whether to offer sponsorship, how to ensure a successful I-9 program (basics, statute of limitations, self-audits, expiring documents and docket deadlines, auto-extension rules, recent discrimination issues), and what President Trump’s policies mean for your foreign national employees. These topics will be addressed in the program and our speakers will offer a series of helpful practice pointers focused around effective and successful immigration programs.
