HR & Recruitment in the US

When expanding a business to USA you'll need to make a few decisions in terms of staffing: decide if you can and want to relocate existing employees, and the processes required to employ foreign nationals (indigenous to your country of expansion).

Employing Foreign Nationals

The fundamental thing to comprehend when it comes to employing indigenous workers is the law. Depending on your location, the employment of staff can be affected by many extraneous factors, such as longevity of service, social charges, collective agreements, qualification and experience, etc.

There are rules on minimum wages in the United States, though they do vary from state to state. There are several government agencies involved with granting permission for workers in the country. First, employers must seek certification through the Department of Labor. The DOL Employment and Training Administration (ETA) provides labor certifications to employers.

International Employees

Yet again, plucking talent from neighbouring countries may not come without its woes. Make sure you know the legislative restrictions and allowances of such a practice.

For foreign employees applications must be submitted to the Department Of Labour. The employer generally must also petition the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (formerly the Immigration and Naturalization Service) for a visa on behalf of the foreign worker. The foreign worker applicant(s) must also establish that they are admissible to the United States under provisions of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA).

Employee Relocation

Perhaps you need someone with talent, experience and reliability. Someone you can trust. Someone with the right understanding of your business to join you overseas. And why not. But you must consider both the cost-effectiveness of such a move, and the laws in the USA that preside over it.
