In the past few years, the H-1B visa program and immigration enforcement efforts continued, albeit numerous policy adjustments and regulation changes. Some of the recent updates in this area of law include the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) regulation to remove H-1B visa lottery and replace it with salary-based selection, as well as the latest wage rule released by Department of Labor (DOL) for H1-B workers and employment-based immigrants. Thus, it is vital for companies and businesses to stay on guard of the latest developments to successfully address the emerging legal challenges and risks.

In this LIVE CLE program, immigration attorneys Ignacio A. Donoso (Donoso & Partners) and Diya A. Mathews (Chugh, LLP) will guide the audience through the trends, notable court rulings, and common pitfalls in the H1-B program.
