Creating sound strategies from nonimmigrant to Employment-Based Immigration
The most valuable employees are often those who have been with the company the longest.
Foreign nationals working in the U.S. under temporary employment visas are no exception. When a company determines that it needs such a worker on a permanent basis, it must determine the most successful PERM strategy to use. To hear more, contact an experienced business immigration lawyer at the law firm of Philip Levin & Associates, Prof. Corp.
Nonimmigrant work visas are finite in duration meaning an employee must return to his or her home country at its termination. Employers seeking to retain their investments in foreign national employees can seek to make his or her status in the U.S. permanent through the U.S. Department of Labor's PERM process (ETA-9089).
