Online CLE Immigration Compliance

Join us for this Knowledge Group Online CLE Immigration Compliance Webinar. Immigration compliance remains to be a top priority under the Trump administration. The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has been instructed to increase its worksite enforcement by 400%, thus, multiplying worksite investigations in the coming years. With this intensified enforcement, it is imperative for business leaders, who are eyeing foreign talent, to be proactive in light of the expected policy changes.

Although today’s political backdrop presents a number of challenges to immigration compliance, it can still be manageable.

In this Webcast, a panel of distinguished professionals and thought leaders will help employers and their counsel understand the important aspects of this significant topic. They will provide an in-depth discussion of key workplace immigration compliance issues as well as the recent enforcement trends and developments. Speakers will also offer best practices to mitigate common pitfalls and risk issues.

Key topics include:

  • Increased Immigration Enforcement – Recent Trends and Developments
  • Impact on Employers
  • Immigration Compliance Management – Best Practices
  • Common Pitfalls and Risk Issues
  • Regulatory Outlook

Who Should Attend

  • Employers and Employees
  • Employment Law & Immigration Attorneys
