Employment immigration: If legal problems arise

Many foreign nationals arrive in Florida arrive under a particular legal status. Employment immigration visas allow immigrants who satisfy eligibility requirements to live and work in the United States. There are three preference categories under an EB status. It can be highly stressful trying to figure out which visa you need when you're making plans to travel to this state or another to work.

Immigrants with executive experience, as well as professors, athletes and those with extraordinary business skills are typically in the highest preference category. Skilled workers and professionals usually obtain EB-3 or third preference visas. A prospective employer has legal obligations regarding a potential employee's eligibility.

It is important to seek clarification regarding which specific application is necessary for a particular individual, as paperwork errors can prompt significant delays in your ability to enter the United States or may even impede the process altogether. It is illegal for an employer to knowingly hire a foreign national who does not have proper documentation. To comply with the law, an employer must verify that a prospective employee is authorized to work in this country. Employers who fail to comply can be hit with substantial fines and other legal repercussions.

If you've encountered challenges during or after the employment immigration process, it is helpful to speak to someone well-versed in U.S. immigration law.
