Quarles Immigration Attorneys Write Law360 Article About Immigration Considerations with Layoffs
Timothy D’Arduini, Lynn O’Brien, Andrew Kuntz and Nicholas Lowrey wrote an article for Law360 about variables employers should consider when planning layoffs that may affect foreign nationals working in the U.S.
The authors, all Washington, D.C.-based members of the Quarles & Brady Immigration & Mobility team, outlined several of the immigration-related factors employers should account for when planning layoffs.
In an excerpt from the article, they explain that companies who handle these situations appropriately can make themselves more attractive to foreign talent.
For employers considering these corporate events, taking steps to be thoughtful about the impacts on foreign workers — and creating strategies to reduce those impacts — can set a company apart in their industry.
Layoffs may be unavoidable. But they can be implemented in a way that provides laid-off foreign workers the best opportunity to find alternative arrangements, and that attempts to attract top talent looking for employers that will support work visa sponsorship.
