Arnall Golden Gregory’s Immigration and Global Migration and Employment practices would like to invite you to attend a live 2 hour CLE webcast hosted by The Knowledge Group.

In order to employ foreign workers in specialty occupations, U.S. businesses make use of the H-1B Visa Program. The H-1B visa is a frequently used nonimmigrant visa category for employers to obtain work authorization for key foreign national employees. As per U.S. immigration law, only a limited number of H-1B work visas are made available each year. Thus, businesses need to be well prepared for the upcoming H-1B cap season so that their H-1B petitions are properly filed and their foreign national employees have the greatest chance of success of obtaining an H-1B visa.

AGG Partner Teri A. Simmons will participate in a panel discussion, providing an in-depth analysis of the fundamentals as well as updates of the significant issues on Cap-Subject H-1B Petitions. The panel will also offer the audience with best practice suggestions and practical advice to avoid possible risks and pitfalls.

Key Topics Include:

  • Key Requirements for Cap Subject H-1B Petitions
  • Review of Adjudication Trends and Strategies for Avoiding RFEs
  • Update on “Cap-Gap” Provisions and STEM
