VIDEO: 3 Things Employers Should Know About the Executive Order on Travel and Immigration

Mar 7, 2017

​President Trump's new executive order reinstitutes a travel ban for nationals from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.

It will be in place for 90 days initially, but could be extended. Countries could be added or removed from the ban list.

What does the executive order mean for employers?

Justin Storch, agency liaison of the Council for Global Immigration, an affiliate of the Society for Human Resource Management, offers employers three recommendations about what they need to do now that the order has been signed.
