Immigration Services

Immigration Services

Our immigration services include compliance advice and external auditing services as well as defense of employers in government enforcement actions. We prepare petitions for employment-based immigration benefits.

This practice area is spearheaded by Ryan J. Hatton, a frequent construction-industry trade publication author. He also is a frequent presenter on workplace immigration compliance at the State Society of Human Resource Managers (SHRM) conferences and webinars.

We provide a suite of immigration-related services in three areas:

  • Compliance
  • Defense of government enforcement actions
  • Affirmative petitions for foreign-based workers

Our compliance services to business clients include:

  • Form I-9 audits
  • Compliance program audits
  • Liability audits
  • Anti-discrimination and UIREP auditing

We also work with our clients to ensure compliance with Federal Acquisition Regulations pertaining to E-verify requirements on government-funded projects. We assist clients selected by the federal government for an ICE audit to navigate the process, and if needed, challenge a Notice of Intent to Fine before the OCAHO. Finally, we assist clients in their cross-borders work-force needs to obtain the following temporary-worker visa categories: TN, H-1B, H-2A, H-2B, and L.
