Business Immigration & the Trump Administration
Please join us for a discussion on the final 2018 US tax reform and how it impacts your global mobility program. Our global mobility tax team will discuss how tax reform impacts employees and employers under various assignment policies. We will also be reviewing with the group case studies to help illustrate the impact of the tax reform.
With the U.S. economy hovering near full employment, and skills shortages in key fields, American employers must rely partly on foreign national talent for success. Under the Trump Administration, employers have struggled to forecast access to talent from abroad, as the Administration's "American First" themes take shape and as lack of consensus persists in Washington not only between Republicans and Democrats, but within each party and between branches of government as well.
Yet broad changes are taking place, to immigration policy overall and to business immigration policy in particular. These changes are taking place at many levels, from dramatic Executive Orders and other Presidential-level policy pronouncements to less formal but far-reaching policy shifts in the immigration agencies.
This discussion will (i) review the major immigration changes to date under the Trump Administration and their the impact to businesses and (ii) forecast what new challenges corporations may anticipate to their business immigration programs in the coming year.
