Be Prepared, Not Scared! Strategic Immigration Tactics in a Changing World
Wednesday 06/20/2018 10:00 AM - 11:15 AM Add to calendar
1.25 SHRM PDCs | Competencies: Consultation, Global & Cultural Effectiveness, Business Acumen | Intended Audience: Midlevel
Workplace Application:
You will learn about the immigration issues impacting businesses new to foreign hires or international travel, and how to prevent problems rather than react to them. 

All companies need to be prepared for increased enforcement of immigration laws – even those that don't often send people overseas or that have small foreign national populations. But with the daily burdens faced by HR managers, immigration compliance may not always be a top concern. As scrutiny of foreign business visitors and international workers increases, don't wait until problems arise. Be prepared for the challenges your employees may face in working and/or living overseas. This session will help you:

  • Independently identify travel situations that could present problems for traveling employees or overseas assignees. 
  • Create a plan for how and when to seek legal advice and/or assistance for traveling employees. 
  • Communicate potential consequences of immigration noncompliance to senior business leaders and employees, to help them understand the importance of immigration and prevent problems.
