CASPA Special Event Announcement

Special Event Announcement

Dear eLetter readers,

As you might have noticed recently, the number of CASPA hosted and co-hosted events have increased during the COVID-19 pandemic. Although we had to take deliberate action to cancel two of our signature events - Spring Symposium and Job fair, that didn't stop us from continuously serving as a valuable resource for our members and the community. Despite the on-going shelter-in-place order, many of us are still working hard to invite speakers to address some of the hottest topics - healthtechnologytax, and legal issues. As we tried to schedule the seminars utilizing the speakers' earliest availabilities, some of the seminar dates were settled with a very short notice (less than one week) and would miss the previous regular eLetter event announcement. Therefore, we have decided to publish the CASPA Special Event Announcement exclusively to our eLetter subscribers, so that we can make sure you don't miss any great seminars. Please enjoy the following seminar about H1B visa update and more to come.

Thank you for your continuous interest and support of CASPA.

Allen Liu, Head of IT

2. Are there any issues if H-1B workers work from home? 
4. Can an employer reduce the work hours and/or wages of H-1B employees?
5. Does every H-1B employee have 60 days grace period after the termination of the employment? 
6. Can companies continue with the Green Card process for employees? How does the COVID-19 pandemic affect that?
7. Did President’s Proclamation on April 22, 2020 affect H-1B workers and employment-based Green Card applications?
8. Can H-1B workers apply for unemployment benefits and/or taking advantage of COVID-19 stimulus benefits? Will getting these benefits be considered public charge and affect their Green Card applications?

Thank you for your kind attention and generous support. We look forward to seeing you at CASPA events.
