Organizations that hire foreign employees must comply with a complex assortment of often-confusing immigration laws and regulations. Especially in the U.S., where the federal government is seizing the assets of companies that employ undocumented workers and imposing felony charges, it is critical that employers understand and resolve the issues related to employment eligibility and documentation.
Dickinson Wright’s immigration practice regularly assists clients with a wide variety of matters related to the international movement of personnel. Our team works closely with lawyers in the firm’s other practice areas, such as tax, labor and employment (including employment discrimination), employee benefits, and entertainment law to assure that all immigration and related legal issues are addressed in the context of business operations and transactions.
With offices in the U.S. and Canada, our immigration practice works seamlessly across borders to ensure that our clients’ businesses continue to run smoothly as they navigate through the immigration system.
