How to Hire/Contract Eligible Talent
Join us as Andrew Rivera, an attorney and a consultant with LEDC discusses How to Hire/Contract Eligible Talent in the US.
Many business owners face significant challenges to acquire the talent needed to help their business succeed. Likewise, many persons including immigrants face significant barriers to pursuing employment in the United States.
Business owners must ask for proof of legal status, and it is illegal for any business employer to hire a person knowing that the individual is not lawfully authorized to work in the United States.
This webinar will outline some of the legal ways to hire or contract talent in the United States.
It is your responsibility, however, to determine whether you may legally pursue these options based on your requirements and the eligibility status of the people you need to further your business goals.
This webinar will review employee and contractor eligibility guidelines. It also will cover the U.S. Social Security card presentation and application procedures and the usage of the Individual Tax Identification Number (ITIN) as part of the eligibility verification and tax reporting processes.
Finally, it will review the interplay of the Federal agencies, their forms, and available resources to boost talent opportunities and help lay a pipeline of new options to engage employees and independent contractors.
