The Emerging Technology Alliance is launching a spring workshop series beginning March 9 at the Cortland County Country Club.
In an era of growing cultural diversity and global opportunities across all business sectors-from technology to health care and agriculture-this session will focus on “Employing Foreign Nationals: New Trends in Immigration Law and Policy Affecting Upstate NY Employers.” Topics will include recruiting, hiring and firing foreign nationals, visa sponsorship and government delays, how to deal with green-card issues, travel and security concerns and anti-discrimination issues. The speaker will be from True, Walsh and Miller, LLP, a firm that specializes in immigration law.
The workshop will be held from 8:30-11:30 a.m. at the Cortland Country Club. The program is $20 and includes a continental breakfast. Reservations are required and may be made by calling the Cortland County BDC-IDA at (607) 756-5005 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
