Employer Compliance

Our services are not limited to obtaining non-immigrant or immigrant visas. We assist U.S. employers with immigration and employment law compliance thereby helping businesses avoid penalties and fines related to the I-9 employment verification process.

Immigration laws make it illegal to hire foreign nationals who are not authorized to work in the United States yet employment laws protect workers from being discriminated against based on their race, color, age, sex, national origin and religious affiliation. Penalties may be imposed against employers for either violation: knowingly hiring and continuing to employ an unauthorized worker or an employer with a proven track of discrimination.

Employers can also be prosecuted for failing to complete and maintain the required documentation. Without exception, U.S. employers are required to verify that all employees (including U.S. citizens) are authorized to work in the United States.
