On March 11, 2010, Gunster immigration attorneys, Sarah Lea Tobocman and Jay Carmichael participated in a very well attended webinar hosted by the Employment Law Alliance (ELA).

Ms. Tobocman acted as the moderator of the panel discussion and Mr. Carmichael was a featured speaker, along with other colleagues from across the country.

In speaking to the topic of “Hiring, Documenting, and Terminating H-1B Workers in a Climate of Increased Government Scrutiny” – Ms. Tobocman and Mr. Carmichael  spoke about compliance issues, the need for employers to apply by or as soon as possible on or after April 1 for one of the limited number of H-1B visas that will be available in October 2010; and ways to ensure employer compliance with governmental regulations relating to the employment, furlough, and termination of H-1B workers.
