Written specifically for human resource professionals, The HR Immigration Pocket Reference(TM) is designed to be a quick reference tool that addresses everyday immigration issues in HR management.
HR professionals have long sought relevant information presented in a practical format to help navigate them through the many changing and complex immigration laws and regulations that impact their daily responsibilities. This pocket-sized, 3x5 publication serves as that navigation tool.
Authored by attorneys who regularly counsel HR professionals on employment verification and eligibility laws and regulation, this reference book presents those requirements and visa options in a practical format. It is not only designed to provide explanations in a comprehensible manner, but it also presents information in checklist, table, and bullet-point format to facilitate quick reference and meaningful daily usage in HR management.
It is small enough to keep at your side at all times, but just the right size to reference valuable immigration information needed in everyday HR management. The attention to relevance and presentation are key to making this book valuable to HR professionals. Indeed, unlike other publications, this reference book covers not only employment verification compliance matters, it goes further to cover two additional sections: temporary and permanent employment categories detailing admission requirements across all available visa options for employment. Moreover, unlike other publications, this reference book does not cover aspects of immigration law unrelated to the work of HR professionals. Instead, it pulls together only relevant requirements and processes in immigration compliance and employment opportunities that impact an HR professional's company and employees thereby representing the best and most likely used source to help HR professionals on a day-to-day basis.
The value of this book is the authors' ability to bring their knowledge to bear on the specific needs of an HR professional's day-to-day responsibilities. It was designed to facilitate the understanding of the law in its most up-to-date and relevant form for the intended HR audience. It serves as practical reference point on everyday immigration issues and as a roadmap for HR professionals who must spot immigration-related issues that impact their company and employees. The authors have labored to keep the intended HR audience well-oriented and well-supplied with relevant content. More than anything else, this book is written with the promise that it will deliver practical usage for HR professionals, again and again.
This reference book begins with crucial guidance on employment verification that impacts every employer. To help HR professionals maintain compliance with federal and state law, this publication provides numerous practical tools including a step-by-step guide on how to verify employee work eligibility status, a checklist to help steer clear of employer sanctions, tips to avoid discrimination, an I-9 compliance plan, and an E-Verify process flow chart. Also, HR professionals will find guidance and information to help them comply with new E-Verify regulations relating to federal government contractors and subcontractors.
In addition to the compliance section, this reference book has two additional sections covering the various temporary and permanent employment categories. Each section details key admission requirements across all visa types, including periods of admission, length of stay, and a description of the circumstances under which nonimmigrants and immigrants may or may not work in the United States. All this information is presented in a format that is easy to read and quickly accessible Included are tables listing all employment visa categories with descriptions and definitions of each, tables listing lawful periods of stay under each visa category, detailed definitions of various visas types including the H-1B and L-1 visas, tables to help understand eligibility for various employment-based green card categories, as well as a PERM process flow chart.
This reference book concludes with appendices, including the USCIS fee schedule for easy reference and other useful resources such as photo guidelines and links to processing times for various visas.
