Trump Administration's Impact on U.S. Business Immigration

President Trump has taken quick action to follow through on campaign promises of immigration reform. Miller Johnson’s immigration practice group leaders will provide a one hour webinar on expected immigration policy and procedure changes that will impact the business community. The discussion will include changes to the commonly used H and L visa classifications for highly skilled workers in the IT profession, engineers, physicians and other medical professionals. Proposed changes to investment based visa categories, NAFTA TN visa for nationals of Mexico and Canada, and a potential halt on employment based green cards will also be reviewed. Information on enhanced efforts to penalize employers for undocumented workers, and increased Form I-9 Employment Verification audits will be provided to help employers be prepared.

FLSA: Exemptions, Worktime, and Other Challenging FLSA Issues

It has never been more important to be up-to-date on wage and hour matters. In President Obama’s final year in office, we saw a continued increase in wage and hour audits by the DOL, as well as a significant increase in lawsuits by individuals and groups claiming unpaid wages and overtime pay. In addition, the recent controversy over the new white-collar regulations has drawn many employees’ attention to the issue of employee misclassification for the first time, which is an area of frequent liability for employers. Therefore, employers should make every effort to educate themselves and their human resources department regarding wage and hour law.

I-9 Compliance: More Important Than Ever

The immigration landscape is changing daily. One constant though is the government’s focus on employers who employ undocumented workers in the United States. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has been specifically directed to increase its efforts to deter illegal employment in the United States. The Agency has implemented a broad I-9 inspection program to promote compliance with the law and sanction those who break it. This workshop will focus on the DHS’s increased efforts on enforcement at the employment level, new enforcement tactics, and updates on key programs.
