Fisher & Phillips offering Free Webinar – July 8, 2009
“In light of the burgeoning number of immigration-related federal and state laws, immigration compliance is now a major concern among employers of all sizes. This is especially true in the hospitality industry, where employers face unique challenges in complying with federal and state immigration laws. For example, the presence of contract or seasonal workers in your business, or management of your facility by a hospitality management company, can complicate compliance efforts.
During this webinar we will highlight the most important steps that should be taken immediately to ensure compliance, and we will also preview new and emerging rules and regulations. These include revisions to the Form I-9 and special I-9 issues for contract labor, new state and federal laws requiring use of E-Verify, including a new requirement that businesses holding federal contracts use E-Verify, workplace immigration raids targeting hospitality businesses, and Social Security no-match letters. It is important to remember that these compliance issues affect all businesses, not just those with foreign national employees.
The second portion of the webinar will focus on the unique visa options that are available for foreign-national employees working in the hospitality industry. Whether you are looking to hire new talent, or seeking to retain a valued foreign-national employee, understanding the breadth of visa options available will be valuable in managing your personnel resources. We will not only describe the qualification criteria and limitations of each visa, but will give specific examples of how it can be used in a variety of hospitality settings.
This hour long webinar is free, but registration is required. Once your registration is complete you will receive an email confirmation with instructions on how to join the webinar.
