  • Tracking F-1 STEM OPT Compliance: Who Is Responsible, and Is It Happening in a Timely Manner?
  • Big-Picture I-9 Compliance: Is Your Client Collecting I-9s From the Appropriate People, and Are There Processes in Place?
  • Attestations Abound: Are You Up-to-Speed on Who Is Attesting to What on Which Forms (and Do You Have Documentary Evidence of Division of Labor)?
