Executive Order Imposing Travel Ban: Special Update

On January 27, 2017, US President Donald Trump signed an executive order that included a travel ban and visa freeze for foreign nationals from seven countries. The Department of Homeland Security and Department of State immediately took enforcement steps. In response, several legal actions were filed in federal court – the most recent resulting in a federal judge suspending parts of the order, a ruling that the US government is appealing to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals today.

Please join our Global Mobility & Migration partners Liz Stern and Grace Shie as they answer questions organizations are asking, including:

  1. Which of our employees and contractors are directly affected by this executive action?
  2. How do the various court filings affect the impact of the executive action on our employees and contractors?
  3. What should we advise our managers, employees and contractors to do while court actions are being resolved?
  4. What should we do to assist them throughout this period?
  5. Are there other executive actions in the works that we should be preparing for?
  6. What is the best way to stay abreast of these developments?
