Information for Employers and Employees by Immigration Attorney in Fresno

Employers must verify that an individual whom they plan to employ or continue to

employ in the United States is authorized to accept employment in the United States.

As an employer, you may require the services of a foreign national to work at your

company or business. If the individual is already a permanent resident (green card

holder), you may hire that individual, but you must comply with the employment

verification requirements.

If the alien is not already a permanent resident, you will need to file a petition so that

the individual may obtain the appropriate immigrant or nonimmigrant classification. You

may chose to file an immigrant petition (permanent) or a nonimmigrant petition

(temporary) on behalf of that employee. Fresno Immigration Attorney Phillip Kim
provide information on how to petition and the different eligibility categories.


No alien may accept employment in the United States unless they have been authorized

to do so. Some aliens, such as those who have been admitted as permanent residents,

granted asylum or refugee status, or admitted in work-related nonimmigrant

classifications, may have employment authorization as a direct result of their immigration

status. Other aliens may need to apply individually for employment authorization.

There are many ways in which a person may be able to work in the United States. You

may seek an immigration classification that permits you to live and work in the United

States permanently or temporarily. In most instances, your employer or potential

employer must petition for you. You will find more information about coming to the

United States to work temporarily or permanently and the many different eligibility

categories for working in the United States.
