Raymond G. Lahoud, a Member of law firm, Norris McLaughlin, P.A., and Chair of its Immigration Law Practice Group, will present “Is Your Business Struggling with Immigration Compliance?” at the 2019 Lehigh Valley Business HR Symposium on Wednesday, September 25.
The firm is a proud presenting sponsor of the event, to be held 8:00 – 10:30 a.m., at ArtsQuest at SteelSacks in Bethlehem. Lahoud will discuss how critical it is for local businesses to be prepared, as immigration enforcement is om the rise.
“Employers must be reminded that immigration compliance is now a critical component in the management of all businesses, regardless of size or industry, including taking preventive measures on a continual basis. I feel it is my responsibility as an employment immigration compliance attorney to get in front of as many business owners and HR professionals as possible to really urge the importance of this legal immigration issue,” said Lahoud.
Panel discussions will also address company culture, overtime law, and other topics of interest to the Greater Lehigh Valley business community. For more information, click here.
