Navigating Immigration: How to Hire Current Visa Holders

U.S. businesses are consistently faced with the challenge of finding qualified candidates to fill highly skilled positions. The demand for the best talent continues to be fierce and many employers are turning to foreign talent already in the U.S. on a visa. Join Immigration Attorney, Jason Finkelman, for a discussion on how U.S. businesses can find success navigating the immigration system to hire foreign employees who are already in the U.S. with a visa or in the green card process. 

Learn when employers can hire existing visa holders, when these candidates are able to change jobs, steps involved for employers and visa holders alike, and the timeline for processing and approving the transfer of employment. This session is advanced and is geared towards human resources leaders, recruiters, and business leaders who oversee and/or are involved in the hiring process.

Session attendees will enjoy a spirited and insightful conversation along with breakfast for attendees sponsored by MakingaBenefits. This presentation is pre-approved for 1.5 strategic HRCI and SHRM recertification credits.
