March Legal Hour and Luncheon
10:15 am - 11:15 am
Speaker: Francisco Hernandez
Topic: Immigrant Labor: The Ultimate Human Resource
This more-controversial-than-ever political issue is also an economic and Human Resources issue. Amidst the highly-debated Trump administration’s proposed wall, the recent government shutdown, heightened law enforcement and long-simmering unrest surrounding immigration issues, supply and demand ultimately dictates whether human beings will risk their lives to find work. Not only does this create staffing challenges in today’s low unemployment environment, it also creates legal challenges that HR professionals must be aware of and deal with on a daily basis. Join Fort Worth immigration attorney Francisco Hernandez as he addresses these topics, and the fact that no one is more against illegal immigration than undocumented immigrants.
