New regulatory requirements, stiffer adjudication standards, delays, application denials and increased requests for evidence make the current immigration climate increasingly challenging for HR professionals. 

  • Are you developing the best prior to initiating the immigration process?
  • Are you asking the right questions for optimal recruiting and retention?
  • Have you taken the steps required to operate in an increasingly contentious compliance environment? 

BAL leaders will address these and other issues and offer tactics required to maximize success and minimize risk in light of USCIS, CBP, DOL and DOS adjudication and enforcement trends.

  • Learning Objective: Developing strategic, programmatic approaches to employee recruiting and retention

Navigating Borders (CBP) and Consulates (DOS)

  • Learning Objective: Preparing employees for extreme vetting and establishing internal contingency planning protocols

Compliance and Risk Management
