Immigration Information for Employers
In the United States, employers are required to verify certain documents
and information about all potential employees as part of determining their
eligibility for employment. When it comes to foreign nationals or non-U.S.
citizens, there are additional verifications which must be made. First
and foremost is the verification that the potential employee is legally
authorized to work in the United States. Click here to read more information about
I-9 employment eligibility verification .
An individual who is in the United States for the sole purpose of furthering
their education, would be on a
student visa and be ineligible for fulltime employment.
Family visas are not proof of individuals' employment eligibility either. If an
individual possesses a
green card he/she is eligible for employment, providing you, as the employer, has
complied with all the employment verification requirements.
If you have questions about the eligibility of a potential employee, or
wish to file a petition in order to allow a foreign national to obtain
immigrant visa or
non-immigrant visa which would allow them to work in the U.S., you need to contact a Tampa
immigration lawyer at our firm immediately.
Are you an employer with immigration-related questions?
There are situations which arise in companies where foreign labor may need
to be hired, especially if a qualified U.S. citizen is not available.
In cases such as this, employers can petition for a foreign national to
come to the United States to work either temporarily or permanently. This
need most commonly presents itself when unique skills are required to
perform certain tasks. It may be worth the effort to bring in an individual
from a foreign country, who already has the required technical skills,
rather than to spend time and money training someone new.
It is essential that any employer, if they employ foreign nationals in
their company, verifies the validity of proper
immigration eligibility. Being neglectful or ignorant of immigration laws could end
up in legal complications for your company. That is why if you, as an
employer, have immigration-related questions or are in need of immigration
services, you must contact our firm at once.
