Join attorneys from Jackson Lewis P.C. as we review critical changes in business immigration and employer compliance over the past year and focus on further changes that are expected, as well as strategies for coping with those changes in 2019.

In his two years in office, President Donald Trump has made immigration a critical priority, issuing Executive Orders focusing on protecting U.S. workers and reducing the employment of immigrants and undocumented workers alike. Worksite enforcement and I-9 audits are on a sharp increase. All employers are affected by the Trump Administration’s immigration compliance and enforcement agenda.

 This session will highlight what employers need to be alert to, including:

  • Uptick in I-9 and e-verify compliance and enforcement
  • Increase H-1B and L-1 RFEs and denials
  • Notices to appear (NTAs) for deportation hearings post petition denial
  • Special issues for student employees including the future of STEM OPT
  • H-4 work authorization
  • Special issues at the border including travel ban 3.0, extreme vetting and state legalization of marijuana use
  • DACA and TPS
