Soon, employers will be filing H-1B petitions to enter this year’s lottery. Not all petitions will be selected. 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 non-immigrant 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 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.
