“Everything a Startup needs to know about U.S. Immigration”

Appreciating the challenge that start-up companies have in harnessing the talent that exists within New York City's immigrant community, Michael J. Wildes, Managing Partner at Wildes and Weinberg P.C., will lead a seminar covering immigration considerations for startups with an overview of the non-immigrant visa categories, requirements for eligibility for businesses and employees, employee/beneficiary issues, as well as potential solutions to those challenges.

The seminar will include:

1) Provide start-ups with an introduction to U.S. visa issues, with topics including employment visas (H-1B, E, TN, L-1 and O-1), student visas (F-1), and investment immigration procedures.

2) Outline information on employer compliance, sanctions, and the anti-discrimination provisions of the Immigration and Nationality Act. Will cover Form I-9, proper record keeping, best practices, update on E-verify, and employment discrimination information.

3) How to become a U.S. citizen and the advantages of doing so.

The seminar is followed with Q&A and networking.

Kosher wine and cheese and light refreshments will be served.
