Proposed New Rule to Benefit Healthcare Employees (among others) on Temporary Visas and in Employment-Based Green Card Process

First few Article Sentences

On December 31, 2015, United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) submitted a draft rule for public comment called, “Retention of EB-1, EB-2 and EB-3 Immigrant Workers and Program Improvements Affecting High-Skilled Nonimmigrant Workers,” that would change certain aspects of employment-based visa programs. The recent proposed rule from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) would provide a number of benefits for foreign nationals on temporary visas and greater job flexibility during the employment-based green card process. Considering the significant role immigrants play in the health care workforce, healthcare employers should be aware of potential impacts on their employees.
