Immigration law and compliance is a critical part of the hiring process, but it’s confusing, and this confusion can lead to mistakes and problems down the road. It may be simpler for large corporations who have their own departments dedicated to new employee hiring and processing, but you need an outsourced, experienced team of immigration law professionals to take care of these challenges for you, and WTA has just what you need.
Immigration compliance requires diligent administration in the following areas:
- I-9 forms processing
- “No Match” letter responses and compliance
- E-Verify program management
- Updates on changes to immigration rules
- Expiry date monitoring service
- Recruiting assistance
- Employee public inspection files
Why Should a PEO Manage Your Immigration Compliance
As if the normal procedure of hiring a new employee did not provide enough steps and challenges, hiring a non-U.S. citizen can be extremely difficult without the proper knowledge. Still, you know talent when you see it, and when a prospective employee requires immigration paperwork processing, you consider it a small hurdle in the grand scheme of how he or she will contribute to your company’s success.
However, without valid employee eligibility verification, your company could face massive financial penalties, and your business reputation would take a severe hit. Whether the issue at hand is processing a work visa or obtaining the documentation needed to present to the relevant authorities, immigration employee management can result in hours spent on the telephone figuring out the process with federal and foreign offices. You could better use that time elsewhere.
