Breaking Up Is Hard To Do—the Plight Of The H-1B Employees And The Challenges For Those Who Represent Them
Wendi S. Lazar, a partner at Outten & Golden LLP, describes the unsettling state of the laws governing H-1B visas and the resulting difficulties for attorneys advising clients who hold these visas. Both the BCIS and the Department of Labor have jurisdiction over various aspects of H-1B visas, and the two agencies have produced some conflicting and inconsistent guidance and regulations regarding the duration and portability of H-1B visas after an employee has been terminated. In other areas neither agency has offered any guidance at all, leaving visa holders to choose a course of action and hope for the best, with no certainty that it is legally correct.

Expat Or Local? What German Employees Must Know When Coming To Work In The U.S. (Parts 1 & 2)
Employment attorney Wendi S. Lazar, with Ian M. Maywald, German American Trade, Volume 18, Number 9, November 2007. Discussion of possible terms of employment contracts for German workers coming to work in the U.S.
Most German employees who come to work in the U.S. are either transferred from a U.S. or foreign corporation on temporary assignment (“expatriates”) or are here in the U.S. seeking new employment (“locals”). In both of these situations knowing the differences between German and U.S. employment law is important. These differences are significant and working with an employment attorney to memorialize the relationship into a binding and explicit agreement is critical for job security and asset protection for these employees and their families.
