article title The US government has banned some foreign companies from hiring Americans as employees.
The news is so shocking, in fact, that the country is scrambling to figure out what to do next.
It is unclear if President Donald Trump will change his mind.
But if you are in the United State, you might want to think again.
A government regulation that will likely come into effect in 2018, the US Citizenship and Immigration Services Act, was written by the Obama administration and passed in May.
The law requires employers who want to hire foreign nationals to have a green card application and then to have their applicant submit an affidavit stating that they have never worked in the country before.
It also requires that applicants must show a history of hiring foreigners.
“The government is telling employers, ‘Hey, we want you to hire this person,’ ” said Mark Zaid, a former deputy assistant secretary of the Treasury for immigration and the deputy director of the Homeland Security Department’s Office of Immigration Statistics.
“That’s the message.”
It is a message that applies to most employers across the globe.
And the United Kingdom, France, Australia and other countries that do not require green cards are among the countries that have passed the rule.
For some employers, the uncertainty is already causing them to rethink hiring practices.
“People are saying, ‘Oh my god, I’ve been told not to hire Americans because I don’t have an immigration document,'” said Daniel McKeown, a lawyer in New York City.
McKeown is a former adviser to the Labor Department’s chief immigration lawyer.
He now works for a firm in New Jersey, where he has represented about 250 companies in federal court.
McKeeown said he has been asked to work with companies that had already had green cards in place and had yet to hire someone.
He said he had been asked by a couple of companies that were interested to interview for a position, but he declined.
“It seems like they’re being told, ‘No, you’ve got to do this before we hire you,’ ” he said.
McDonald’s, for example, had been looking for a new assistant to help it process new applications.
When it came to hiring for a specific position, McDonald’s had to wait until it could get a green-card application from a greencard holder.
But that position was closed after that company got the green card.
McDonah’s, a chain of fast-food restaurants in New England, was looking for an assistant who had been an employee for years.
The company did not have a legal basis to hire the applicant and could not have obtained a green Card application from him.
McKay’s, meanwhile, hired an employee who had worked at McDonald’s for years but was not eligible to work because of his immigration status.
The application for that position, too, was denied.
McDougherty’s, another restaurant chain, hired the same employee who was previously employed by the same company but who was a nonimmigrant.
But the company had not obtained a legal justification to hire him, and his immigration case had been dismissed.
McDougal’s, which employs hundreds of thousands of workers in New Hampshire and Vermont, has not yet hired a foreigner.
But some of its other employees, including some from the United Arab Emirates, are also foreign-born.
“We are in a Catch-22 situation,” said David Eberly, a partner at the firm that is representing McDonald’s.
“There’s no way to know if someone is in the right place and the right country, if they’re in the wrong place and there’s no guarantee they’ll be able to get the right visa.”
McDoughers has hired an immigration lawyer to work on the case and said it will likely seek an order to stop hiring foreigners and to require that all of its U.S. employees who have green cards show an employment history of at least one year.
“There are a lot of reasons why they have the problem they have, but this is a significant one,” Eberle said.
