Heed Immigration Rules When Hiring Foreign Employees

Heed Immigration Rules When Hiring Foreign Employees

 

A recent influx of jobs into the Western New York marketplace has left Buffalo area businesses in an interesting position — trying to find enough qualified employees to fill those openings. As a result, a number of companies, especially those needing to fill high-tech positions, may expand their search beyond U.S. borders.

That, however, can create unanticipated problems for companies not familiar with the process for filling positions with foreign nationals. In a nutshell, the process can be both complicated and expensive.

Erie County Fair....Only 2 days Left!!!!

Erie County Fair....Only 2 days Left!!!!

Well Fairgoers, we are down to the last 2 days of the Erie County Fair, and if you have not been there yet, you better get going!!!  You don't want to miss the one and only 175th Erie County Fair!!

This run of the Fair has been quite the Fair.  There are so many things to see and so many things to do, that you may just run out of time to see it all!  The rides, the food, the shows, the exhibits, the things to buy and so much more.  I have walked the Fair a ton of times, and probably have still missed some things.

I love the food at the Fair and will be sad to eat my last Jim's Fries and deep fried taco, and sad to eat my last Chiavetta chicken dinner.  They both have been the best this year.  I am really not a big "deep fried" person, but if you are, you indeed only have these last 2 days to get your fill.  You will be able to find almost any "deep-fried" thing that you want this year.
