With the change in presidential administrations, employers can expect several important immigration issues to affect their operations. First and foremost, employers seeking visas for highly skilled foreign workers are facing a new process and an impending application deadline. On top of this, travel restrictions compounded by the COVID-19 pandemic mean foreign workers, and therefore their U.S. employers, face additional challenges in planning to work in the U.S. Neil and Kathleen will discuss:
- Deadline: March 1, 2021 -- How to Prepare for This Year’s H-1B Cap Filings (allowing U.S. employers to temporarily employ foreign workers in specialty occupations);
- Restricted Business Travel into and out of the United States: How presidential proclamations and travel bans may continue to affect your business operations in 2021;
- With Consular and Customs and Border Protection Agency Waivers allowing emergent travel limited, pre-planning for Business Travel is critical.
