ILW.COM's seminar course "INS, DOS, DOL - The Search for Consistency" features Jacqueline Bednarz (INS), Steve Fischel (DOS) and Harry Sheinfeld (DOL). Leading the discussion will be distinguished practitioners Ron Klasko and Tammy Fox-Isicoff who are justly reputed to be dynamic and incisive speakers. Each of the seminar course's 3 sessions features 30 minutes of Q&A with the speakers.
Many complex immigration issues require resolution with more than one government agency. Examples include H-1B and adjustment portability, 245(i) labor certification grandfathering, ACWIA issues, 212 waiver issues, changes in location or salaries of H-1Bs, changes from adjustment of status to consular processing, substitution of experience for education, J-1 issues and consular readjudication of approved petitions.
Many opportunities exist to ask the INS or the DOL or the DOS for that agency's position on particular issues. However, this seminar is a rare opportunity to confront three of the most knowledgeable government officials in one forum to resolve issues where their respective agencies have taken contrary or inconsistent positions.
