If your company wishes to look overseas when hiring, there will be a lot
of potential barriers to overcome. The U.S. has many laws and procedures
when it comes of work visas and immigration laws and it can be a great
help to companies to enlist the service of an international business law
attorney for representation and counsel. According to the U.S. Citizenship
and Immigration Services, the company who wishes to hire a non-national
must first file a nonimmigrant petition on the perspective employee's behalf.
One of the criteria that must first be met is in regards to the whether
or not your company can hire a local employee. If this is true, the employer
can submit a labor certification request to the Department of Labor. They
must also file a Petition for Alien Worker, which essentially means they
are acting as a sponsor for the applicant. Before going through this process
and filing these applications, it is in your best interests to talk to
an international business attorney from our firm. We will do everything
possible to help you.
