Employers Hiring Foreign Nationals
Employment Immigration in Long Island & the New York Area
American employers face challenges when their workforce requirements exceed the skills of U.S. applicants applying for positions or when a scarcity of U.S. candidates in a particular field makes filling positions difficult.
Through employment immigration, employers can hire foreign nationals and in addition to resolving employment issues, they can form mutually beneficial bonds.
Opening Doors to Permanent Residency and Citizenship
Employment immigration opens doors for many immigrants to become permanent residents and eventually U.S. citizens. At the Law Offices of William A. Streppone, we share in your interests and hopes of connecting with an employer and embarking on a new life in America.
Immigration lawyer, William A. Streppone also understands the prospective employee’s perspective: the opportunities that immigrants seek when obtaining an H-1B visa, L-1 visa and other available work permits.
Workers with specialized skills who have obtained a bachelor’s or equivalent degree and have received a job offer by a U.S. employer can apply for an H1-B visa. Employers must petition for an H1-B visa on your behalf, which is referred to as sponsorship.
Eligibility requirements are different for L-1 and H1-B visas. The U.S. employers are either a parent, affiliate, subsidiary or branch of the foreign company. Employees applying for an L1 visa must hold a position as a manager, executive or be workers with specialized knowledge and skills. While this is the most basic difference between H1B and L1 visa requirements, as your immigration lawyer, I can explain all the eligibility requirements involved.
If you have been hurt in an accident or by a product, you may be entitled to a cash reward. It is important to have an attorney who understands your legal status in the United States guide you through these types of cases while protecting your rights so you receive the compensation you are entitled to.
