Harris Beach immigration attorneys will discuss “I-9 Compliance: What Every Seasonal Business Needs to Know,” and “H-2B: Navigating the Maze,” in coming weeks to wrap up an immigration webinar series presented in conjunction with Farm Credit East.

Leonard J. (L.J.) D’Arrigo and Jarrod M. Sharp are scheduled to present on “I-9 Compliance: What Every Seasonal Business Needs to Know,” Dec. 7 and “H-2B: Navigating the Maze,” on Jan. 11. Click on the link to register for the webinar you’d like to attend. SHRM credit is available.

The two experienced attorneys previously presented on “H-2A: Getting the Agricultural Workers you Need Legally” and “Permanent Foreign Labor Options for Seasonal Businesses.” You can view each presentation by clicking on the links.

One of the most pressing issues facing seasonal businesses continues to be labor – specifically how to secure reliable employees to fill both seasonal and permanent needs in an era of unprecedented need. The webinar series discusses navigating through the complex maze of the H-2A, H-2B and Permanent Labor Certification program regulations to provide an overview of visa requirements, procedures, compliance and employer obligations under these programs, as well as best practices in the hiring and onboarding of employees in compliance with I-9 requirements.
