H-1B Visa/Immigration Workshop

February 23 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


As the April 3rd U.S. H-1B work visa filing deadline rapidly approaches, Capital Factory invites you to join Immigration Attorney, Jason Finkelman, for a hands-on visa training workshop designed to walk companies, startups, and foreign nationals through the ins and outs of the H-1B work visa process. Jason will provide an overview of the start to finish steps to secure an H-1B visa. Topics covered include:

  • Employer responsibility
  • Employee eligibility criteria
  • The H-1B visa cap and lottery
  • Educational and/or work experience requirements
  • Types of jobs appropriate for H-1B visas
  • Salary requirements
  • Application processes and timing
  • OPT/STEM status issues
  • Costs
  • Adjusting to lawful permanent resident status (“green card”) through employment
  • Options for start-ups and small employers – including challenges for companies with no revenues

Jason will also discuss alternative U.S. work visa options, and provide information on the latest immigration updates, separating fact from rumor regarding the President’s Executive Orders and proposed work and student visa legislation.
