For Businesses -- An Important Asset

A company's workforce is one of its most important assets. In recent years employers have had to deal with an ever more complicated array of federal regulations affecting who is eligible to work in the United States. From social security "no match" letters, to the multitude of issues arising from the I-9 employment eligibility verification process, employers struggle to meet the legal prohibition against employing unauthorized workers. At the same time employers must also abide by the anti-discrimination requirements of the Immigration Reform and Control Act. The Pace Law Firm, LLC can help companies establish a compliance plan, or just review existing policies and procedures.

Employer sponsored worker petitions can be a vital tool to obtain top talent from around the world. Attorney Pace represents companies though the highly complex permanent labor certification process, leading to the award of permanent residence ("green card") status. Pace also provides employer representation during governmental I-9 audits. Pace Law Firm, LLC helps growing businesses with their workforce needs.
