The Business Immigration & Compliance Practice of Greenberg Traurig will host a 30 minute webinar entitled “Government Shutdown: How it Affects Foreign Nationals” this Thursday, October 17th from 1:00 – 1:30 p.m. EDT, presented by Laura Reiff and Ian Macdonald.
Three weeks into the shutdown of the US federal government, the webinar will explore the on-going problems and issues caused by the extended shutdown of the federal government. These issues are not limited by the borders of the United States. The shutdown has a significant impact on global business and immigration agencies, leaving many employers and foreign nationals concerned about how to carry on “business as usual.” Both company representatives and foreign national employees are invited to attend this 30 minute speed-webinar. We will identify and address areas of the shutdown that impact immigration and global business, including:
- Hiring or Extending Status for H-1B Employees
- Social Security Numbers
- Green Card Sponsorship
- Government Contractors and Furloughs
- I-9 Employment Verification Process/E-Verify
- Visa Issuance Challenges
- Driver License Challenges
- Alternative Visa Options
