As the new year rounds into full swing, it is important you are informed of any changes in the law that may affect how you account for your foreign national employees. The Department of Homeland Security has recently proposed various changes to regulations that could have significant effects on the responsibilities your business has in relation to its foreign national employees. It is important that you contact a local immigration attorney for help determining how any changes in the law will affect your filing requirements and the eligibility requirements of your employees.
If the Department of Homeland Security’s proposed amendments are finalized, there will be some significant changes to regulations regarding permanent (employment-based immigrant visas) and temporary (non-immigrant visas) visa programs that may prove helpful to your business.
As someone who employs workers from various backgrounds and with varying immigration and citizenship statuses, your responsibilities to your employees may seem endless. However, there may be light at the end of the tunnel. Changes like those aforementioned could mean your life as a business owner could be much easier in many ways.
