Employment immigration for businesses

Business owners in Florida may have foreign national workers as employees on a long-term or short-term basis. In order to obtain permanent residence or non-immigrant work visas, workers have to be qualified based on strict and complex criteria. Although immigration procedures are intended to aid companies in United States with procuring the skilled personnel they need from other countries, procedures for obtaining green cards or visas do not really pertain to business necessity.

To make sure that immigration laws are properly adhered to, foreign national workers and the companies who want to employ them should obtain legal counsel in the early stages of the hiring process. Any failure to comply with immigration requirements and laws, whether it is deliberate or not, can make a company legally liable for their missteps and could have a significant negative impact on the worker. Because of how long some immigration processes can take to complete, it is advisable for the parties involved to initiate the process long before the foreign national is to be employed.

In order to obtain work in the United States, foreign national workers may require a non-immigrant visa or a temporary work visa. There are various types of non-immigrant visas, and each one has their own unique criteria and legal requirements.

One common non-immigrant visa is the B-1 visa for business visitors. With this visa, foreign business visitors can come to the United States to attend conferences, seminars and board of director meetings as well as meet with colleagues.

An attorney who practices employment immigration law may assist companies and individuals with obtaining the appropriate employment visas. The attorney may advise clients on the proper procedure for applying for certain types of visa and the documentation that is required. The attorney may also be able to review cases of denied visas.
