Philly SHRM Webinar

The Trump Administration is making progress in its agenda to encourage employers to “Hire American.” The agencies are restricting access to talent from abroad and punishing employers who hire those without documents. Through executive orders, regulatory agendas, and day-to-day decisions, immigration agencies are make it more difficult to predict which employees can successfully be hired and retained through the immigration process. They are also raising the consequences of non-compliance by employers and asserting joint employment liability for use of contract labor. Join us to learn about what to expect from 2018 in the area of immigration, and how employers can protect themselves and continue to sponsor workers from abroad to meet critical talent needs.
