Current Issues in H-1B Visas

Stay up to date on the fundamentals of the H-1B visa process and learn how recent legislation could impact expedited visas.

Stay up to date on the fundamentals of the H-1B visa process and learn how recent legislation could impact expedited visas. In order to be globally competitive, employers must hire the best and the brightest employees available. Many employers cannot find enough professional U.S. workers to meet their needs - the U.S. produces too few engineers, mathematicians, software engineers, etc. Sometimes a company hosts an intern or student who turns out to be a fabulous asset. How can they successfully employ foreign nationals needed for the success of their business? This topic will give HR professionals and attorneys an overview of one of the most important ways an organization can employ professionals from other countries. This material will provide an overview of the H-1B category; describe the requirements for obtaining H-1B status; help the employer comply with notice requirements; and explain the process, timeline and costs for obtaining H-1B status for its employees. With a cap on the number of H-1B visas available and restrictions on other visa categories, the H-1B visa category is more important than ever for employers. This topic will assist employers in ascertaining whether H-1B status is a possibility, and obtaining H-1B status for valuable professional employees, and a look into the future for H-1B status.
