Despite the “Great Resignation,” global talent is increasingly flowing to the U.S. As employers face staffing shortages, an aging workforce, and a skills gap in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math, there is still a deep pool of foreign national candidates. But how does a U.S. employer access and inboard qualified foreign workers?

Understanding complex immigration laws is vital if you intend to hire foreign national talent. Join us as we answer these and other questions:

How does a US employer interview, recruit and screen foreign national applicants to be sure they are eligible without discriminating?

What obligations does a US employer assume when hiring a foreign national employee?

What is the finite term a foreign national employee will be available and able to work for a US employer?

Certain employment-based categories may give the US employer more advantage. Which ones are best for your business?
