For the second year in a row, Jennifer Grady, Esq. has been invited to speak at the SelectUSA Investment Summit Investor Academy on June 18, 2017 in Washington, D.C.  The Secretary of Commerce, Wilbur Ross, has been confirmed as the host of the event.  Last year, President Obama and Former Secretary of State, John Kerry spoke at the event to a crowd of over 2,500 investors and Economic Development Organizations (EDOs).  This year, it is rumored that President Trump will be a keynote speaker.  On the first day of the Summit, Ms. Grady will be providing her expertise as an immigration and employment lawyer to educate hundreds of potential foreign investors from around the world on US business culture,  employment law regulations, and visa options for entrepreneurs.

Ms. Grady’s presentation, designed for investors and Economic Development Organizations (EDOs) will be titled, “Achieving Global Mobility – Employment Structures, Visas, and Compliance Standards for Expanding into the U.S. Market.”

About the Presentation

Global organizations establishing or expanding operations in the U.S. market require “local” human resource (HR) strategies to ensure compliance both at home and in the United States. This process can be even more challenging for startups and SMEs – entities which frequently face administrative staffing and resource constraints. Furthermore, while regulatory compliance is crucial, understanding HR standards, norms, and best practices is equally important to gain a greater competitive advantage in the U.S. market. Ms. Grady’s session will review the different levels of regulations – from federal rules governing visas and labor to state level laws – that apply to U.S. companies, introduce different employment structures, taking into account specific considerations for small businesses.

investors to engage with state, regional, and local economic developers – all at
one event.
