L.J. D’Arrigo will be on a panel of speakers during the American Immigration Lawyers Association’s 2021 virtual conference. The conference will be held from June 9-12.

A description of what the program will cover is below:

One of the most pressing issues facing our seasonal businesses clients is finding short-term reliable employees to meet seasonal needs, yet H-2B practices remain rare in the immigration bar. For practitioners new to this area, our expert panelists will navigate through the complex maze of the H-2A and H-2B visa programs and provide an overview of visa requirements, procedures, compliance, and employer obligations under the programs. This session will arm you with additional tools to offer your clients with additional options.
