🔹 Here’s five things you need to know if you’re an HR professional or foreign national dealing with layoffs:
1️⃣ This can impact nonimmigrant status or those on a work permit based on a Green Card through employment or their spouse’s work visa.
2️⃣ Most nonimmigrant visas provide a 60-day grace period for filing a change of status, changing employers, or leaving the United States.
3️⃣ Some work visas, like E-2 or L-1 visas, present challenges when changing employers.
4️⃣ Layoffs can affect pending Green Card applications and labor certifications of other foreign nationals with the same employer.
5️⃣ Foreign Nationals facing a layoff should always consult with an immigration attorney who does not represent their employer.
