Employer's Guide to Employment-Based Green Cards

OnDemand Webinar (86 minutes)

Get a step-by-step look at the laws and regulations surrounding the Employment-Based Green Card Process.

With the current administration making non-immigrant visa status more difficult to obtain and maintain, there's now increased pressure on employers to ensure their valued foreign born professionals are not at risk of being sent out of the country unexpectedly. The only way to avoid some of the current issues with non-immigrant processing is to offer a permanent solution through U.S. permanent residence. This talk will give you the tools to understand how best to implement the green card process for at risk employees and offer a stable long-term work opportunity to your client's employees.
