Working on behalf of a university client, Lewis-Burke Associates LLC worked closely with a variety of groups on an immigration reform bill to correct the prevailing wage determinations for temporary foreign employees at institutions of higher education.

While collaborating with other universities and groups on this large issue, Lewis Burke also worked on behalf of another client – a coalition of independent biomedical research institutes – to gain an additional modification to the proposed legislation that would restore preferential treatment for temporary employees at not-for-profit research organizations.

Through Lewis-Burkes efforts, the proposed language was included in both the House and Senate versions of the bill.
