Supreme Court Permits Partial Travel Ban to Proceed

The Worldwide  Employee Relocation Council recently issued a statement regarding the Supreme Court’s decision to allow a partial travel ban to take effect.  The purpose of their statement was to provide guidance and key reference information for the relocation industry.

Arlington, VA— On June 26, the U.S. Supreme Court issued an unsigned order to allow the implementation of parts of an executive order signed by President Trump to temporarily suspend foreign nationals from six countries from entering the U.S. Based on the facts of the case, the Court formed a distinction between nationals who have “a bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States” and all other foreign nationals. The Court upheld the suspension of the ban for foreign nationals who have such a relationship, including individuals employed by a company in the U.S.

In its order, the Court did not rule on the legality of the executive order and stated the Court will hear arguments when it convenes for the October Term 2017. In the meantime, the Trump Administration may suspend from entering the U.S. those foreign nationals from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen who do not have a relationship with a person or entity in the U.S. The suspension may also apply to the admission of refugees from the six countries.

The President issued the revised Executive Order (No. 13780), Protecting the Nation From Foreign Terrorist Entry Into the United States, on March 6 in response to courts halting implementation of his initial Executive Order (No. 13769) on the travel suspension. In his revised order, the President made several changes to the initial order including exempting green card holders. Both orders had an effective period of 90 days for foreign nationals and 120 days for refugees. The Administration could put the partial suspension into place beginning on June 29.

Key Reference for the Workforce Mobility Industry

While the revised executive order had exempted foreign nationals with green cards and visas, the Supreme Court order cites as an example the travel suspension should not apply to those foreign nationals who have “accepted an offer of employment by a U.S. company.”

Corporate Housing Outlook for 2017

The Corporate Housing Providers Association (CHPA) recently released it’s annual Corporate Housing Industry Report for 2017. The industry overview report highlights market-specific benchmarking information on 62 North American Metropolitan Statistical Areas.

According to the industry survey the US corporate housing average daily rate (ADR) increased to $150.44 from $142.00 the previous year.  With temporary living expenses being a major component of most relocation budgets Relocation America International has partnered with Reloquest and it’s groundbreaking temporary housing procurement platform to help reign in this cost.

Highlights from the report include:

  • The number of occupied units has increased 12.5% since 2012. As residential apartment construction increased, the availability of units grew, as did accommodated demand. Recent research by Integra Realty Resources reported that the cyclical peak of apartment construction is expected in the next one to two years, indicating unit availability for corporate housing should be higher in 2017.
  • Survey data is collected on the various types of corporate housing units including studio, one, two, three-bedroom and other number of rooms. This mix has been fairly consistent for the past nine years, with one-bedroom units making up 48% to 51% of inventory.
  • The average stay in a US corporate housing unit was 86 nights an increase of two nights from the previous year.  The average length of stay has trended upward since 1999.
  • For the sixth successive year, relocation was the largest reason for using corporate housing in the US. Project/Training was the second most cited use of corporate housing.  Technology and healthcare are the largest generators of corporate housing demand by industry.
