Foreign Nationals in H-1B status are increasingly common in our research labs and university classrooms, but the petition process and employment requirements remain poorly understood. In this webinar, we will cover all aspects of H-1B employment, from selection and sponsorship, to renewals, and eventual termination or consideration for permanent residency.
