We are excited to announce that Skoler Abbott has launched Immigration@Work, a blog dedicated to immigration-related issues in the workplace. With the increased focus on the employment of foreign workers, we decided to make sure that our clients keep abreast of the latest developments in this area of the law as well as best practices. Do you know:
- That even if your company does not employ any immigrants or foreign workers that your company could be subject to an ICE (i.e. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement) audit and face significant fines and penalties for failing to fully and accurately complete I-9 forms?
- What to do if an employee working with an employment-related visa requests a leave of absence?
- What you can/must do when a foreign worker is arrested for a traffic violation –or a more serious wrongdoing?
Skoler Abbott is available to assist you with immigration-related matters, including I-9 audits, H1-B Visa sponsorships, advice and counseling. Even if you don’t employ any foreign workers, we encourage you to subscribe to Immigration@Work to keep apprised of developments that can impact even those employers who only employ U.S. workers. If you would like to do so, please use the sign-up form in the right column.
