Statesville Immigration Attorney for Employers

Immigration Information for Employers in North Carolina

At Cobb Law PLLC, we represent employers of businesses seeking to bring employers from outside of the United States. We know that employers are required to take specific steps to verify documents and information about employees to determine eligibility for employment within the United States. Employers must fulfill additional requirements for employees who are not U.S. citizens. As an employer, you will need to verify that the potential employee has received authorization to work within the United States. Also, gain an understanding of who is eligible for employment at your company. If you have any questions or concerns as an employer, do not hesitate to speak with our Statesville immigration lawyer at once.

Who is eligible for employment in the United States?

Individuals who possess a valid green card are eligible for employment in the United States as long as his or her employer has followed all employment verification requirements. Immigrants who are in the country on a student visa are not eligible to secure employment outside of their educational institution. Students on an F-1 visa can, however, be hired for on-campus jobs as long as specific conditions are met. After their first year of studying in the United States, they can be hired for specific occupational employment opportunities. Individuals on family visas are also ineligible for employment in many cases. Prior to hiring a potential employee, ensure that he or she is eligible to work in the country.
