Visas for business and employees
In general, when transferring employees there may be a few visa options available and we will advise HR as to the best options after carefully weighing the short andnlong term needs of the business. In some cases the best choice may be the H1-b Visa. In other cases, even if H1-b's are still availalbe and have not yet run out in a given year, the best choice may be L-1A, L-1B, E-2, E-1, E-3 or O-1, among other options.
We provide guidance to insure that our corporate clients are in full compliance with diverse immigration-related regulations and to insure the continuing smooth flow of new employees from around the globe to US office locations.
Given today's volatile economic environment it is crucial that an assessment be made as to the immigration impact on a corporate reorganization or downsizing. We advise HR and corporate counsel how best to insure the continuing viability of each foreign employees visa status. For exampe, it is often possible to amend employee's visa status from fulll time to part time. For loyal employees that must be "let go", we can provide direct assistance to the individual so that he or she can legally remain in the USA by filing an application to change to another status, such as B-1 business visitor or B-2 tourist (as well as other options depending on the individuals short and long term goals).
