What Comprehensive Immigration Reform May Mean To Your Business


Comprehensive Immigration Reform is a hot topic in Congress and in the news media. While the debate continues to rage over issues pertaining to legal status for undocumented immigrants currently in the U.S., don’t lose sight of provisions that any reform proposal is likely to include, which will impact your Human Resource compliance strategies. This is the first of a series of updates that address aspects of Comprehensive Immigration Reform likely to affect you.
