PIHRA Riverside

Complying With Both Federal and State Immigration Laws - Challenges for Human Resource Managers
presented by Carl Shusterman


The California Immigrant Worker Protection Act became effective on January 1, 2018. The Act places a number of restrictions on California employers, some of which put employers in a difficult position of choosing whether to comply with Federal or State immigration laws. The fines for violations are considerable. We will discuss the best strategies for employers in completing form I-9s, reverifying I-9s, avoiding violations of anti-discrimination laws, conducting internal I-9 audits and whether to enroll in the Federal E-Verify program.
We will also discuss how to sponsor foreign-born employees for temporary visas and permanent resident status.

How to Comply with Federal and State Immigration Laws

  • Whether to Enroll in E-Verify
  • How to Sponsor an Employee for a Temporary Working Visa
  • How to Sponsor an Employee for a Green Card

Immigration Attorney Carl Shusterman has over 40 years of experience practicing immigration law. He served as a Trial Attorney for U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) from 1976 until 1982 when he entered the private practice of law. He is one of the very limited number of attorneys who have been designated as Certified Specialists in Immigration and Naturalization Law by the California State Bar. For more than 10 years, he has been voted as one of the Best Lawyers in America and as a Super Lawyer by his colleagues in the bar.

Carl was featured in the February 2018 issue of SuperLawyers Magazine, and has been named as one of the top 15 corporate immigration attorneys in the U.S. by Human Resource Executive magazine. His hard work and dedication to immigration law have earned him the highest rating (“AV”) in legal ability and ethics from the prestigious Martindale-Hubbell Legal Directory. He has also served as a member of the Immigration and Nationality Law Advisory Commission for the State Bar. Carl is also listed in The International Who’s Who of Corporate Immigration Lawyers and the Chamber’s USA Guide for Leading Business Lawyers.

Carl has testified as an expert witness before the Senate Immigration Subcommittee in Washington, D.C.
