Departments and agencies to be covered will include the DHS's Office of Suspension and Debarment, ICE's Homeland Security Investigations, USCIS's FDNS, the DOL's Wage and Hour Division (H-1B enforcement), and the DOJ's Immigrant and Employee Rights Section. The panelists will discuss anticipatory compliance measures, strategies for minimizing risk and exposure, ways to build a team of multidisciplinary subject matter experts in immigration and white-collar defense, and strategies for gaining the focus of corporate leadership in dealing with ominous immigration worksite enforcement threats.
