By March 20, employers will have completed H-1B Registrations but not everyone will be selected in the lottery. If you miss out on the H-1B lottery this year, does that mean you cannot hire foreign national employees for the rest of the year?
Luckily, employers have other choices when it comes to hiring nonimmigrant workers in the U.S. Depending on what country a candidate is from, perhaps an E-3 or TN visa will work. If you are transferring an employee from a foreign affiliate, the L-1 visa may be available.
WSM offers a series of webinars designed to train HR professionals and in-house counsel on the ins and outs of various immigration processes and requirements when sponsoring individuals for U.S. visas.
In this month’s webinar, we will provide an overview of several employment-based nonimmigrant visa categories. We will discuss: basic requirements of each nonimmigrant visa; timing; spouse work authorization, including updates on the H-4 EAD; and government adjudication trends.
