Employment Based Immigration

There is a wide array of temporary immigration categories that permit foreign nationals to engage in legal employment in the United States. Employment-based immigration allows businesses in the United States to draw from a broader pool of talent to find employees who best fit their needs in an increasingly global economy. Employment-based immigration requires coordination among employers, the employees and government agencies. Failure to strictly adhere to the proper procedures can seriously delay or jeopardize the process, causing a company potentially to lose a key resource.
