Webinar- Immigration Reform: Impact on Employers Webinar 08.27.2013 2:00pm — 08.27.2013 3:30pm

On June 27th, 2013, the U.S. Senate passed Comprehensive Immigration Reform (S. 744) by a 68-32 vote, receiving unprecedented bipartisan support. The House is now taking up separate bills. If you thought that Obamacare was complicated, wait until you see the fine print of Immigration Reform.

The news headlines would lead you to believe that reform is only about increasing border security as the “trigger” for establishing a path to citizenship for 11 million illegal aliens. However, there is much more in the legislation affecting employers — from mandatory E-Verify and increased worksite inspections to new quotas for professional H-1B workers and faster Green Cards for foreign graduates of U.S. universities.

Learn how liberalization of some visa programs will come at a price that you may not want to pay. This webinar will help you anticipate the likely changes and take advantage of the opportunities that the legislation will create for companies recruiting and retaining global talent. Like any sweeping reform, the legislation will have intended and unintended consequences for employers, large and small, requiring you to rethink your visa and hiring strategies to minimize compliance risks and reduce costs.

Join speakers Eliot Norman, Partner, Corporate Immigration Practice Group, Williams Mullen, Washington, D.C., and Ronald Adler, President-CEO, Laurdan Associates, Inc., Rockville, MD, as they discuss the implications of immigration reform for employers.
