What’s more stressful than being laid off? Being laid off and the threat of deportation in a world where you can’t even travel internationally.
Today we’re announcing product support specifically for employees on a temporary work visa, and a partnership with Bridge to provide employers a modern approach to navigating the immigration process.
As part of this initiative, we’re partnering with Bridge, a business immigration provider on an initiative called Next Act to specifically help job seekers who are on a temporary work visa (e.g H1-B, F-1, etc).
Bridge has long championed smarter immigration for the modern workforce. When COVID-19 hit, Bridge recognized that layoffs would jeopardize the immigration status of tens of thousands of international employees and started Next Act to help this community.
What does this mean for Next Act participants?
