New California Law Authorizes Hefty Fines for Improper Use of E-Verify

By Aleksandra Michailov, Esq.|November 23rd, 2015|Categories: Compliance, E-Verify, Employers, Human Resources, News|

On October 9th 2015, California Governor Jerry Brown approved Assembly Bill No. 622 (AB 622). AB 622 is intended to prevent employment discrimination effected through improper use of the federal E-Verify system – the mostly voluntary online program allowing registered employers to check the employment authorization of new employees. AB 622 does not mandate or disallow the use of E-Verify; instead, it authorizes state fines for its misuse.

The E-Verify system allows employers to check the work authorization of new hires. However, it cannot be used to verify status of individuals who were not […]

By Dimo R. Michailov, Esq.|November 9th, 2015|Categories: AOS, DOS, I-485, News, News Alert, Visa Bulletin|

The U.S. State Department has just released the December 2015 Visa Bulletin which is the third Visa Bulletin for the new FY2016 fiscal year. The major headline in the upcoming month’s Visa Bulletin is the lack of any movement whatsoever in the Filing cutoff dates section of the Visa Bulletin, possibly caused by the October 2015 Visa Bulletin revisions and litigation.   The good news is that the Final Action cutoff dates advance gradually for most categories.
