Immigration Reform: What It May Mean for Your Business

May 29, 2013

On April 17, 2013, a bipartisan group of U.S. senators introduced the Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act of 2013—the first major immigration reform proposal in years. While many hurdles remain before any legislation passes through Congress, it is possible that a bill could arrive at President Obama's desk by mid-summer—bringing sweeping changes for businesses across all industries.

Join us for a one-hour webinar that will help unravel this complex, proposed legislation, and discover how it may affect your HR, employment, and compliance practices; employee recruitment and retention efforts; and legal liabilities.

We will discuss:

  • Legal, economic, and business pressures behind the reform effort
  • Border security and legalization provisions
  • Proposed changes to legal immigration
  • Employment verification provisions
  • Changes to temporary immigration
  • The legislative road ahead, including risks and pitfalls
