There are a lot of regulations in the employment world, and an employer can easily run afoul of them without any intention. For example, did you know that the National Labor Relations Act does not just apply to union employees? Did you know that, barring certain circumstances, the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Act counts any similar job losses within a 90-day period towards the threshold number of job losses for its application? We know these things. We work to stay on top of current issues in areas including the regulatory environment, labor, and occupational safety. We advise clients on these issues as they affect daily operations, and we provide assistance in connection with administrative inquiries and investigations.
In the area of immigration, did you know that each error on an I-9 form can be counted separately when statutory fines are assessed on a per violation basis? We help employers develop a strategy for completing (and maintaining) these critical documents correctly. We also help employers with workplace immigration issues, including obtaining work authorizations such as TN and H-1B visas.
