For decades, the H-1B visa has been the workhorse of employment-based visas, providing highly skilled professionals to the U.S. workforce. The President’s Executive Orders on immigration have brought changes to how U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services adjudicates H-1B visa petitions. In this webinar, Husch Blackwell attorneys will discuss what’s fact and fiction about how these Executive Orders on immigration have impacted the H-1B visa program for employers, and what employers who employ or want to employ H-1B workers can expect in the future.


  • Changes in U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services' adjudication of H-1B visa petitions.
  • Types of H-1B jobs affected by changes.
  • What employers should expect this H-1B filing season and in the future.
  • Recruitment processes for positions that may be filled by H-1B workers.
  • Planning tips for employers.
