Crossover Issues for Immigration Lawyers Representing Employers

This 90 minute web seminar was presented live on February 25, 2014, from 2:00 pm-3:30 pm eastern time.

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.

  • 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
