January 13 Online HR Meeting

Posted on January 7, 2022 By

The COVID-19 pandemic has scattered some employees widely, immediately, and perhaps permanently, changing how companies do business and where their employees perform their work. Remote work has become the new normal and, as a result, many companies are downsizing their physical premises, if not closing them altogether.

Attend virtual meeting of Jersey Shore Association for Human Resources (JSAHR), open to the public, on Thursday, January 13, 2022, from 8:15 to 10:00 a.m. to explore best practices and gain clarity in “Navigating I-9’s, Visas, and Remote Work in a COVID and Post-COVID World.”

Among other topics, Karin Wolman, a New York immigration attorney, will discuss where is the worksite, where is company HQ in the shift from in-office to all-virtual/work, then partly-remote, then back in office. If an office permanently closes, how does that affect a business’s I-9 and Labor Condition Application compliance obligations, posting and advertising requirements for PERM sponsorship? Is there a firm company policy on work from home (WFH) or does it vary be department? Retention and the challenge of immigrant visa quota backlogs vs. employee growth.

Register at htpp://jsahr.shrm.org/events or admin@jsahr.org. Log in details will be sent to registrants. The virtual fees are $10.00 for members; $20.00 for non-members; and free for students and those In-Transition. Send fees prior to meeting to JSAHR, P.O. Box 987, Brick, NJ 08723.
