The Paradox of Compliance: ITAR and Anti-Discrimination Concerns Webinar

02/11/2019 at 1:00 PM (US/Eastern)

Recent settlement agreements between the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) and private companies have shown that DOJ will not tolerate employers discriminating against foreign persons – even where export controls might appear a concern.

At the same time, the export agencies have specific requirements that mandate certain export-controlled information to be restricted from foreign person employees and thus pushing companies to evaluate whether certain positions should be limited to U.S. persons only. The intersection of export control laws and U.S. immigration and anti-discrimination laws is nuanced and complex. With enforcement on the rise, this webinar will provide guidance on how to best navigate these areas of the law, including (not-to-be-missed) overview of the relevant laws and regulations impacting the hiring of foreign persons in the US, challenges & best practices, recent cases, and common scenarios.

The Export Compliance Training Institute is pleased to announce that this webinar will be led by Olga Torres who counsels clients on compliance with the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), the U.S. Export Administration Regulations (EAR), and the various embargo and sanctions programs administered by the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC). She regularly represents clients before the U.S. Department of State Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC), U.S. Department of Commerce Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS), and the U.S. Department of the Treasury.
