Sweeping Employee Training and Management


Managing the Global (Sweeping Employee) Workforce

Keith Pabian

Increasingly, U.S. sweeping companies and municipal sweeping organizations are hiring workers from abroad. Along with perceived benefits come a variety of risks. Keith Pabian, an Immigration Attorney with Hirsch Roberts Weinstein, LLP, provides this March 2011 webinar on the pitfalls and preventatives in such situations.

This webinar was co-hosted by employee benefits consulting firm Longfellow Benefits and employment and labor law firm, Hirsch Roberts Weinstein, LLP.

Logo When U.S. sweeping companies and municipalities hire workers from abroad, it is done in a variety of manners. Sometimes, the company "sponsors" the employee for a work visa. Sometimes the employee already has legal authorization to work in the United States. Either situation raises legal and practical challenges, including:

  • Types of U.S. visas
  • Whether to sponsor an employee for a visa
  • Whether to sponsor an employee for U.S. Lawful Permanent Residency (a "green card")
  • Mechanics and cost of sponsorship
  • Compliance – THE hot topic in immigration law

Keith Pabian is an immigration lawyer who represents companies, organizations, universities, non-profits, individuals, and professional sports franchises to procure temporary visas, work authorization, lawful permanent residence, citizenship, and other immigration benefits in the United States.
