Immigration-Specific Coronavirus Resources Available

Date   Mar 19, 2020

Efforts to stem the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus) have had a significant impact on employers who provide immigration sponsorship (both temporary and permanent) for employees.  But these impacts are also being felt more generally by all employers, in the context of Form I-9 compliance, government audits, and the immigration requirements applicable to all employers.  We believe these impacts and challenges will continue for the foreseeable future as governments and businesses deal with this public health crisis. 

In response, FordHarrison has created a Coronavirus Taskforce Immigration page, where our clients can easily access information on various immigration-related coronavirus issues, including governmental travel bans, changes in immigration processes, suspension of government services, and office closings as well as practical tips on how businesses can manage the impact of this global healthcare crisis as it relates to immigration issues. If you have questions regarding how coronavirus may impact your company’s business immigration needs, please contact Geetha Adinata, gadinata@fordharrison.com, Charlie Roach, croach@fordharrison.com, or Loren Locke, llocke@fordharrison.com, in FordHarrison's Business Immigration practice group or any member of the Coronavirus Taskforce
