Immigration Representation for Employers and Employees

Many United States companies choose to bring in skilled workers and professionals from other countries. The rules and regulations governing employment-based immigration are exceedingly complex. If you are an employer who desires to hire a foreign worker or if you are an immigrant or non-immigrant employee, it is important to pay the strictest attention to every detail.

At the Shane, Shane & Brauwerman, former U.S. immigration judge and Florida Bar certified immigration and nationality law attorney Jeffrey N. Brauwerman is prepared to handle even the most challenging immigration matter. To arrange a professional consultation with Mr. Brauwerman or one of his experienced partners, call the firm's Coral Gables or Plantation, Florida offices at 305-758-1234. Se habla español

IRCA and I-9 Compliance for U.S. Employers

The immigration laws make it illegal to employ foreign nationals who lack USCIS permission to work in the U.S.A. With very limited exceptions, employers are required to verify that all employees (even U.S. citizens) are authorized to work in the U.S.A. by timely completing and maintaining Forms I-9.

Penalties may be imposed against employers for knowingly hiring and continuing to employ an unauthorized worker, and/or for failing to complete and/or maintain the required documentation.
