MIAMI, FL – January 24, 2020 – Immigration attorney Nicolas J. Watkins, shareholder in GrayRobinson’s Miami law firm office, authored the article "Hiring a Foreign Worker? No Problem. You Just Need to Know What to Expect" in the Daily Business Review. Watkins outlines the work authorization and on-boarding process for businesses when hiring a foreign employee.
“When hiring a foreign employee, the first step is for the employer to sponsor the worker for the appropriate work visa,” discusses Watkins.
In order to determine which visa is appropriate for a prospective foreign employee, the prospective U.S. employer must consider: foreign worker nationality, whether the employee will fill a managerial or executive position, or one that requires a bachelor’s degree, and whether the employee has worked for an overseas parent, subsidiary or sister company of the prospective U.S. employer for at least a year.
“With care, hiring a foreign worker is no different than hiring an American one—you just need to know what visa to use and what to expect,” explains Watkins.
