By now, your company has learned if you obtained all the new H-1B visas that you need. If you were like most employers and you did not, you may wish to enroll in E-Verify to benefit from the recent STEM OPT extension rules. By enrolling in E-Verify your STEM employees holding F-1 post-completion optional practical training status can obtain 24 additional months of employment authorization. As if that were not enough incentive, all discussions of Congressional immigration reform assume E-Verify will become mandatory for U.S. employers.
Join WSM for a discussion of E-Verify, how to get your company ready for this likely impending requirement, and how to enroll now to take advantage of the STEM related additional work authorization for F-1s.
This webinar will also provide tips on how to correctly complete Form I-9, the Employment Eligibility Verification form that must be completed for all newly hired employees in the U.S. and how to conduct internal audits. Getting your company’s I-9 program in good condition is an important first step to enrolling in the E-Verify program.
Instructions for logging on will be provided a few days prior to the webinar.
