Anna Scully Featured in Society for Human Resources Management
Mobile, AL. - On April 25, 2015, Anna Scully shared her thoughts on the proposed expansion of the H-4 visa program in an article published by Society for Human Resource Management. The expansion would allow its holders to work while their spouses' H-1B visas are in green card status. This expansion has not been popular with everyone, and the Immigration Reform Law Institute is alleging that it violates federal law. The IRLI argues that thousands of jobs will be taken away from Americans, many of whom are already suffering from unemployment. The proposed change is popular among employers, however. "Companies that employ H-1B workers may find that morale increases among these workers as their personal finance situation stands to improve through an additional income source," said Scully. "They may also find that H-1B workers who are not currently sponsored for legal permanent residence - a requirement to benefit from H-4 work authorization - are putting additional pressure on the companies to start the sponsorship process."
