Employment-Based Visas: Critical Pieces to the Working Puzzle

When it comes to attaining new, skilled employees who show a lot of promise, companies don’t care where they come from. What they do need to care about is making sure that every hire is done properly and is in compliance with the law. So when companies look abroad to recruit new talent, they need to make sure that every step they take is done so methodically and legally.

Employment visas are incredibly valuable for both parties involved in the visa. For the employer, they can bring in a talented person who will help their company grow. For the employee, they get a chance to realize their professional dreams while also having the opportunity to live in the United States. In addition, they can turn that employment-based visa into a chance at a permanent stay in the U.S.

Employment-based visas (or EB visas) come in a variety of forms. From EB-1 to EB-5, these visas all serve specialized functions. Some are for people of exceptional skill; some are for people who work in niche industries or areas; others still are for people with exceptional talent in athletics, the arts and business. These visas can help many people and many companies.

But as we mentioned earlier, the legal side of these visas are the most important — not the intent or the dreams behind the visas. Both parties, the company and the potential employee, need to work hard and compliantly to ensure that the EB visa they are working towards is completed in a proper manner.

Client Reviews
Mr. Cai Is a Diligent Attorney. My sister and I were defendants in a civil litigation case. We hired James Cai and his law firm, SAC Attorneys LLP. Mr. Cai is a diligent attorney and responded to our questions in a timely fashion. He and his staff were very helpful in keeping us informed of the proceedings of the case and in explaining each step. Mr. Cai is also very conscientious of fees and costs, and avoided unnecessary charges. The results of the Summary Adjudication sided with us. The Court Trial resulted in the “Final Statement of Decision” and “Judgment after Court Trial” overwhelmingly siding with us. Cynthia F.
I Am Truly Impressed. After spending a significant amount of time, money and efforts with my previous counsel at a larger law firm without getting meaningful results, I transferred my employment matter to SAC Attorneys LLP. The attorneys there were able to understand the complex situations of my case and put together an aggressive litigation strategy. We were able to file a compelling complaint within a week and forced the opposing party, which was represented by one of the largest law firms in California, to make a substantial settlement offer shortly thereafter. I am truly impressed by the no nonsense and results oriented approach by SAC Attorneys LLP attorneys. A job well done! X. Gao
They Took Time to Understand Our Technology. I am the founder of a bioinformatics start-up in the Silicon Valley and chose SAC Attorneys LLP as our corporate counsels. Their attorneys have great experience with high tech start-ups and were able to offer a highly competitive service plan while not sacrificing a bit of their quality of services. They took time to understand our technology and provided value added services by introducing investors and job candidates to us. We regard our attorneys at SAC Attorneys LLP not only as our legal advisors but also our venture partners. Dr. Pete S.
