Since the start of the Trump administration, workplace enforcement actions have increased 5-fold. No longer is the focus merely on compliance within the frame of I-9 regulations, but the government is also focused on compliance surrounding the hiring of temporary seasonal workers. Now, coupled with a constricting visa processing system and aggressive removal practices, the constraints on foreign workers and the companies that employ them have never been more challenging.
This practical panel with Jonathan Grode, Jennifer Law, Amy Novak and Gary Woodworth will explore what employers can do to ensure compliance and help lobby for an expansive use of business based visas for low skilled workers.
