You will learn about the latest immigration changes that could impact your talent acquisition strategy.  

With the fates of over a million work-authorized foreign nationals hanging in the balance, businesses are facing a potential unprecedented wave of disruption to their talent strategies. In the current immigration climate, your organization needs a new game plan. During this session, you will get the latest updates on the challenges with work visas for students, intracompany transferees, seasonal workers and more; and will learn whether proposals for a new “merit-based” immigration system might offer a solution. As a talent acquisition specialist in a tight labor market, you need to understand how you can tap into the immigrant talent pool. This session will help you:

  • Learn how the President’s “Buy American and Hire American” policy might impact your ability to utilize H-1B, L, H-4, STEM-OPT and other visas for high skilled workers.
  • Understand how the increase in scrutiny and denials of immigration applications may influence your sponsorship costs and impact your business plans.
  • Understand the Federal Anti-Discrimination Law provisions governing what you can ask candidates about their immigration status during the recruitment process.
