Trends and Updates in the USCIS H-1B and L-1 A: Exploring Implications
Recording Available: Thursday, November 05, 2020
The recent years have seen an evolving immigration law landscape in the U.S. Of notable significance is the drop of H-1B and L-1 visa approvals following the "Buy American, Hire American" executive order in April 2017. Changes may still come into view as revisions to the key features of the said visa programs are expected to take place this year.
The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) and other regulatory agencies continue to encourage practitioners to be abreast of any developments that continue transpire in the backdrop. Revisiting their existing company policies and programs is important to ensure compliance with the changing regulations.
In a LIVE Webcast, a distinguished panel of key thought leaders and professionals assembled by The Knowledge Group will present the audience with a comprehensive discussion of recent trends and developments in USCIS H-1B and L-1 A visa programs. Speakers will analyze implications and critical issues in light of recent updates and offer practical compliance tips in this evolving legal climate.
Key topics include:
