Throughout the H-1B filing season, we’ll share tips for getting you ready, starting in this newsletter with new information about license requirements. Below, you’ll also find information on how to correct I-9 mistakes and a powerful success story from one determined employer and immigrant!

As always, thank you for your readership, support, and referrals.
