Immigration Law in the Workplace is the one resource that focuses intensely on the newest changes in the Immigration Law. Over 8 million employers have reporting requirements to the IRS, Social Security Administration and the Department of Homeland Security for their U.S. and foreign workers. Thousands of government contractors and subcontractors will soon need to comply with new federal regulations that require them to use the E-Verify electronic system for new hires and their existing employees.

Immigration Law in the Workplace is an immigration handbook written specifically for American companies and the legal professionals who advise them. It covers everything you deal with - and will deal with - on a daily basis in regard to foreign workers. It walks you through all the current steps and helps you set up a framework so you’re not exposing your company to federal investigation, federal prosecution, and felony charges.

This unique resource is current - and it will keep you current going forward, demystifying immigration law matters, putting them into understandable terms, and giving you exactly - and only - what you need to get the job done. The book fully covers:
