The unavailability of H-1B visas, one of the most commonly used visas for international employees, and other post-9/11 personnel issues will be addressed at a seminar hosted by Lorman Business Center Inc. on Wednesday, June 16, at the Cobb Galleria Centre in Atlanta.

According to Robert Banta, program chair and managing partner or Banta Immigration Law in Atlanta, “concerns about terrorism and security have dramatically slowed the immigration process and blocked the movement of international personnel.” Mr. Banta said an anticipated new labor certification procedure known as PERM will significantly impact the green card process. Immigration issues also affect other processes for international employees, including acquiring Social Security numbers and driver’s licenses, he said.

In addition to addressing these issues, the program will feature representatives of leading international companies, including BellSouth Corp., Home Depot Inc. and ING Group, which will share their insights and policies for employing international personnel, said Mr. Banta.

The seminar is designed for human resource managers, recruiters, business owners and managers, immigration specialists, attorneys and paralegals. It is approved for continuing education credit by a variety of accreditation programs.
