Immigration related compliance is an increasing concern for U.S. employers, who are often caught between two federal agencies with opposing interests: ensuring that all workers are authorized for employment in the U.S. and protecting those who are lawfully here from discrimination.
Although the Form I-9 may on its face appear to be simple, it is imperative for employers and their human resource departments to ensure accuracy and full compliance with the Form I-9. Last year, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) inspected the I-9 Forms of 3,127 employers and issued over $15 million in fines. One employer, Grand America Hotels and Resorts, a hotel and resort operator with several properties throughout the western United States, learned just how serious ICE is over I-9 audits by facing $2 million in fines and forced to spend an estimated $500,000 to create an acceptable I-9 compliance program.

Our office handles a substantial number of ETA Form 9089 – Permanent Labor Certification (“PERM”) applications and we are closely monitoring the current PERM processing times not only for the benefit of our clients but also to be able to predict longer-term trends in PERM processing.
Our office handles a substantial number of H-1B work visa petitions for a variety of U.S. employers and we often share our direct experiences with the H-1B work visa program. This article is intended to share our experience and the current trends with respect to H-1B work visa petitions where there is a change in the job location once the H-1B work visa petition has been approved and during its validity term. The lack of clear, direct and consistent guidance by USCIS makes it ever more important to carefully analyze a particular H-1B change in job site situation to avoid H-1B status disruption and/or revocation.
