DACA & Expanded DACA – Immigrants Switching Employers and Larger Talent Pool

USCIS announced it will begin accepting petitions for Expanded DACA on Feb. 18, 2015.  HR Professionals and employers can expect an increase of employees looking to change employers that will now be legally authorized to work with the Employment Authorization Document available under DACA.  Employees which worked without proper authorization will now have an opportunity to find new and better employment opportunities.  DACA and Expanded DACA increases Immigrant’s ability to switch employers.   Additionally, this immigration action provides for an expansion of talent available for particular jobs or in particular areas.  Employers looking to prepare for changes under Expanded DACA should inquire with experienced immigration/employment counsel.
