American companies deserve the best and the brightest employees they can find. When it isn't possible to fill a position with a suitable U.S. candidate, they might look for talent from abroad. There are many students with degrees from American universities and colleges, as well as professionals who studied and trained in other parts of the world. You might find the perfect fit, with just the qualifications your company needs, but once you identify your foreign candidate, how do you begin to comply with all the laws and regulations from the U.S. Department of Labor and Homeland Security? Where do you start?
Information specifically for employers is available on our site. Attorneys at the Murthy Law Firm have experience guiding companies through the complexities of employing workers from abroad.
