Employment Eligibility For Immigrants

Columbus Immigration Attorney

There are many businesses that strive to be the best at what they do. Some pursue this superior service or product by hiring exceptional workers. In many cases, the workers that they seek are foreign nationals. This would require the business or company to file a petition for residency through employment. There are also many cases where individuals seek to come to the U.S. for work and a better life. If you are seeking employment in the United States, there are several ways to obtain this.

Ohio Attorney Assisting With Employment-Based Visa Eligibility

U.S. law requires employers to obtain proof of identity and employment eligibility from all employees hired on, or after November 6, 1986. According to 8 C.F.R. Section 274a.2, the employment eligibility form I-9 is designated as the means of documenting this eligibility. There are essentially two different ways to be eligible to work in the U.S.:

  • To be a lawful permanent resident or citizen of the U.S.
