How This Impacts Mobility
Despite its uncertainty in the House, the major $1 trillion infrastructure bill has major implications for mobility as it aims to improve roads, airports, waterways, and other methods of transportation that are critical to workforce mobility. Biden’s mandatory vaccination requirement (or COVID-19 testing) for federal employees immediately impacts government workers regardless of their location, and it remains to be seen what challenges this can pose for said employees. The second round of random H-1B selections is a positive move towards allocation of additional H-1B visas, while the confirmation of Ur Jaddou as head of USCIS signals a markedly different direction from the Trump-era USCIS.
Did you miss our public policy webinar?
On 5 August, we held “What’s on Congress’s Agenda for the Fall – and Will It Affect You?”, a webinar that answered such key questions as: Will federal policymakers be able to reach agreement on top issues of concern to the global mobility and relocation industry – and what might the implications be on U.S. businesses? Will the business tax rate change? What is the current state of all-things real estate and mortgage? What other public policy surprises could be on the way? Worldwide ERC Public Policy Leaders Jay Hershman, Jen Stein, Jeff Margolis, and moderator Rebecca Peters gave valuable insight into where public policy is going and how you can help shape it.
