Crossover Issues for Immigration Lawyers Representing Employers

Tuesday, February 25, 2014
02:00 PM - 03:00 PM Eastern Standard Time

Immigration partner Lisa S. Burton will participate in Crossover Issues for Immigration Lawyers Representing Employers, a live webinar organized and hosted by the American Immigration Lawyers Association.  

Have you ever said to yourself, “Help! I need to know employment law!”? Immigration and employment law frequently intersect and employers expect answers. What do you advise when an employee admits to fabricating information on an I-9? Is an H-1B employee eligible for FMLA? How do the Fair Labor Standards Act laws interact with immigrant workers? Is a covenant not to compete an issue? Can the employer ask for moving costs from an H-1B worker? This seminar helps you find answers to these issues and more. 

The discussion will address:

  • Pre-hire and hiring concerns when employing foreign nationals.
  • Wage and hour concerns with different NIV categories
  • Applicability of discrimination protection statutes to foreign national workers
  • Employees working under a false name:  potential issues
  • Employment contracts or restrictive covenants and nonimmigrant Workers
  • Layoff/severance issues for foreign national workers

This 90-minute webinar will be recorded live.
