If you’re listening to this episode, then you’ve made it through one year of the pandemic. This shared collective human experience has shown me how connected we all are. I’m honored to be connected to you.
In this episode of Immigration Law for Tech Startups, I discuss immigration strategies and the future of work, particularly as the pace of technological change accelerates and the widespread adoption of remote working during the pandemic.
Even before the pandemic, many of our clients preferred having an online meeting with us rather than driving one to two hours depending on traffic from San Francisco to Mountain View in Silicon Valley, where our office is located. But is a fully distributed workforce a good thing? What’s gained and what’s lost? And what are the implications of the U.S. Citizenship Act of 2021 if it passes? I discuss this and more in this episode. Take a listen and let me know your thoughts on the future of work by leaving a comment below.
