Your company plans to make an offer to a foreign national. What do you need to know before you sponsor your new hire for an H-1B and/or a green card? Since the downturn in the U.S. economy, government agencies have applied increasing scrutiny to employer-sponsored petitions. This recent trend has made the sponsorship process more cumbersome for the employer. In this session, you will learn how to spot issues before they become problems and enhance your chances of filing successful immigration petitions.
