After Attorney General Jeff Sessions made a determination that the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program was an “unconstitutional exercise of authority by the Executive Branch,” the Department of Homeland Security announced that it would stop renewing DACA applications that expire on or after March 6. With less than 25 business days until the program ends and no clear path for legislative relief for DACA beneficiaries, companies should begin preparing for the increasingly likely outcome that they will need to terminate key employees in the weeks and months ahead. BAL has drafted an FAQ that addresses when the program is scheduled to end, what steps companies employing DACA employees should take in the coming weeks and the possibility that Congress might pass DACA legislation. The full FAQ is available here.
