VISA Requirements and Payroll Withholding Jurisdictional Compare Smart Chart: There are more than 40 different types of U.S. visas – each with unique rules, requirements, deadlines, and forms. Keeping up to date and understanding all the rules and requirements presents a tremendous burden and challenge for corporate human resources, in-house counsel, payroll, and employment law professionals. And with immigration, foreign worker and enforcement issues so frequently covered in the media in recent months, it is increasingly important for employers to properly comply with all the myriad rules that apply to different kinds of visas and foreign workers. Based on direct questions and feedback from customers who find it difficult to find the information they need on payroll and employment eligibility and limitation issues for workers who are on U.S. visas, this time-saving tool is the first comparison solution of its kind that provides up-to-date state and federal rules for every kind of U.S. visa. It provides professionals with a unique solution to directly address these pain points and streamline the process around this highly complicated area, allowing users to compare rules and requirements for 44 different types of U.S. visas and easily find information that often requires hours of research from multiple sources.
Defending a DOL or ICE Worker Visa Audit: This SmartTask is designed to guide the user in defending a foreign worker visa audit. Though there are dozens of worker visa classifications, only four visa types can be audited by the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL). The types of worker visas that the DOL audits include the Permanent Labor Certification Program (PERM) visas, H-1B, H-2B, and H-2A visas. This SmartTask guides the user through the steps to take when defending the different types of audits. It also discusses the issues likely to emerge during each audit and best practices in maintaining supporting documentation. Further, this SmartTask explains what to do in the event of an I-9 form audit from either the DOL or an office of the Department of Homeland Security, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
Navigating the Foreign Worker Visa Application Process: This SmartTask is designed to assist both in-house and outside counsel in evaluating criteria when a U.S. company seeks to have a foreign employee or a foreign new hire work in the U.S. It may also be used when a foreign national has particular qualifications, skills or wealth and seeks to immigrate to the U.S.
