Employees who are not US citizens or lawful US Permanent Residents (“Green Card holders” or “resident aliens”) must have permission from the US Citizenship & Immigration Services to remain and to work in the United States. This permission comes in various forms of immigration classifications. All non-citizens and non-immigrants must establish and maintain a valid immigration (or visa) status for employment. You addressed this employment requirement at the time you received your hire letter. However, you may have additional questions. If you have any questions, please contact the Director of Immigration Services, Brian Meyerhoeffer, at 737-4769 or email@example.com.
