Employer-based Immigration

Corporate compliance: Under the watchful eye of the U.S. government, businesses must take appropriate measures to ensure proper employee authorization and verification. Establishing the suitable internal checks and balances is time-intensive, and if not done properly, can expose businesses to substantial liability. Fowler White protects its corporate clients by reviewing I-9 forms, preparing the necessary documents for any audits and developing an effective strategy to comply with all worksite enforcement actions.

In addition, Fowler White assists clients in drafting PERM labor certification applications which require a higher level of involvement from employers and well-supported applications. Clients benefit from our particular insight into the complex recruitment and filing procedures implemented by the PERM Labor Certification system.
