Webinar: Immigration Law Issues and Changes with COVID-19
Presented by Fragomen


Program Overview:

The rapid spread of the COVID-19 virus is presenting substantial challenges to NEHRA member companies as they work to keep their foreign national population legally present in the US, and to continue the immigration sponsorship process for new and current foreign national employees.  Legal experts from the Boston office of the Fragomen law firm will present on the latest developments in this critical area, including:                

                -        US border restrictions (including current options to enter the US - who can and how)
                       -        Other border restrictions severely affecting foreign nationals present in the US (e.g. India)
                       -        Options for extending or changing status in the US

                       -        “Satisfactory departure”

                       -        USCIS easing of in person I-9 completion rule

                       -        USCIS easing of “wet” signature requirement on case filings

                       -        Addressing H-1B employer obligations arising from “Work from home” mandates

                        -        USDOL suspension of certain PERM requirements
                        -        Update on US Consular operations
