McLane Middleton attorney Shiva Karimi discusses hot topics in business immigration. Topics to include:

H-1B FY2024 Lottery Overview
    • Who to apply for: Recent foreign graduates, employees outside the U.S., etc.
    • Registration process for “H-1B lottery”.
    • Planning for alternatives to H-1B if not selected

In addition, if you have any employees who will be graduating or have recently graduated and are authorized to work pursuant to Optional Practical Training (OPT) or STEM OPT, now is the time to begin strategizing for this year’s H-1B cap registration. H-1B registration is right around the corner (early March) and only occurs once a year. Employers should review the employment authorization status of their current and potential employees and identify any individuals who may benefit from entering H-1B registration.

Hot topics in business immigration are always changing, so the topics above are just a sampling of what may be discussed. The program will cover the latest news as of the presentation date.
