From Bad to Worse: Disruption of the H-1B Talent Pipeline

Date: Thursday, April 25, 2019
Time: 12:30 PM - 1:30 PM ET
Moderator: Mark Roberts, CEO, TechServe Alliance
Speakers: Mike Hammond, Attorney, Hammond Law Group, LLC
Julie Strandlie, Government Affairs Representative, TechServe Alliance 
Sue Thaden, President, Client Resources Inc.
Rick Ritzler, Chief Talent Officer, Information Control Corp.

With a shortage of IT and engineering professionals in many high-demand skill sets, the disruption of the H-1B talent pipeline could not come at a more inopportune time. IT and engineering staffing and solutions firms are experiencing increasing rates denials of H-1B petitions, substantially increased costs, greater uncertainty, and wary clients.

During this webinar, one of the leading immigration attorneys in the IT and engineering staffing space will provide an overview of the evolving challenges confronting staffing firms who rely on H-1B talent (whether you sponsor or not) to meet client needs. Following the overview of these issues, we will hear from executives of staffing firms about the business implications for IT and engineering staffing and how they are responding to these disruptive forces.

There will be an opportunity for questions. All TechServe webinars are recorded and distributed to all registrants. TechServe member firms have free access to all webinars. Non-members may participate for $195 per webinar.

Staffing Legal Risk: Real Life Stories

Date: Thursday, May 9, 2019
Time: 12:30 PM - 1:30 PM ET
Moderator: Mark Roberts, CEO, TechServe Alliance
Speakers: Bill Josey, Attorney at Law
Jill Norton, Senior Account Executive, TechServe Alliance Business Insurance Program

In a departure from the approach taken by most educational sessions on legal topics that involve a lecture on theory and a laundry list of ‘dos and don’ts,' this TechServe Alliance webinar will draw upon real-life examples of legal issues actually encountered by IT and engineering staffing firms in daily operations and the typical insurance claims they face.

What are the real risks to your business? What types of claims are typically covered by insurance and what claims are not insurable?

You will hear from Bill Josey, former general counsel of one of the country’s largest IT staffing firms who currently works with dozens of IT staffing firms as part of the TechServe Alliance Premium Services Program and Jill Norton, the Senior Account Executive for TechServe Alliance’s Business Insurance Program which insures over 300 firms in our industry.

There will be an opportunity for questions. All webinars are recorded and sent out in a follow-up email to all registrants. TechServe member firms have free access to all webinars. Non-members may participate for $195 per webinar.
