About the Program
Learn how to file H-1B cap-subject petitions when USCIS begins to accept them in April 2018.  This visa program allows U.S. businesses to employ foreign workers in occupations that require the application of specialized knowledge, such as science, engineering, and information technology. A numerical cap severely limits the use of the program to 85,000 each fiscal year, and USCIS uses a lottery to select H-1B petitions for processing.

Experienced practitioners will provide an overview of the H-1B program, including practical tips for drafting and filing petitions. Get strategies and practice pointers for successfully overcoming Requests for Evidence, which have recently proliferated. Gain insights into the current H-1B adjudication climate, and position your clients for success.

You Will Learn

  • About the H-1B Cap and obtaining exemptions
  • How to establish that a position qualifies as a “Specialty Occupation”
  • How to comply with the Prevailing Wage Requirement and prepare the Labor Conditions Application
  • About Employment Authorization documents for H-4 spouses
  • About the impact of Executive Orders and the Highly Skilled Worker Regulation
