Immigration Made Simple
GT's Business Immigration Group is aware of the difficulties most Human
Resource executives, managers and personnel face when dealing with the complex
issues surrounding the U.S. immigration laws and regulations. We design
user-friendly and cost-effective systems to handle the immigration process,
depending upon your company's staffing needs and the size of foreign hires.
We are dedicated to assisting our corporate clients by personally guiding
them through the often frustrating labyrinth that immigration work entails.
We are committed to ensuring that the process is made as simple as possible,
while at the same time ensuring that you fully understand your company's
responsibilities and liabilities.
We assist in designing plans to ensure that your company is always in
compliance with all applicable immigration and labor laws. We assist in
IRCA or "I-9" reviews , as well as audit preparation. Our offices also provide
services with regard to due diligence audits in the context of mergers and
acquisitions. Our offices coordinate and maintain all immigration and labor
law files for foreign employees. We will preserve company specific prerequisites
(including indexing recruiting efforts) in order to save time during the
immigration procedure. We hold telephone and e-mail consultations with company
representatives at no cost to those companies that we regularly represent.
Our office also provides automatic tracking of all work visa expiration
dates for your employees. Upon request, we can provide web-based case management
that allows our clients access to their statuses on-line. Our state-of-the-art
technologies and case management systems provide our clients with the tools
that ultimately simplify corporate immigration matters.
GT's Business Immigration Group regularly offers immigration presentations
and seminars to recruiters, HR personnel, and other company representatives
involved in the process. We are able to meet with corporate executives and
H.R. directors in person at your place of business, or our staff can organize
a meeting via telephone for a complimentary presentation of our services.
At the presentation we will review your company's current immigration related
arrangements. There is no charge for a presentation of our services and
an evaluation of your company's needs.
