WHAT THE WH EXECUTIVE ORDER MEANS FOR EMPLOYERS
On December 3, ImmigrationWorks USA held a national conference call to discuss President Obama's executive order that will grant work permits to up to 4 million unauthorized immigrants – primarily parents of U.S. citizens and permanent residents – who will now be allowed to remain in the U.S. legally.
The new policy has important implications for employers.
On the conference call, the IW Legal Advisory Committee explained what the policy means for businesses that rely on less-skilled immigrant workers.
