Employers will face significant new hurdles in the H-1B process including a new Electronic Registration Process starting in March 2020, which represents the most significant change in H-1B process in the last decade. The new Electronic Registration Process allows employers to initially submit an H-1B lottery electronic application without incurring the time and expense of preparing the traditional government forms.
Additionally, employers nationwide have experienced increased H-1B denials, as the government continues to scrutinize entry-level computer-related occupations. National approval rates stand at 68%, which is a four-fold increase in the number of denials versus two years ago.
Join immigration attorney Roger Tsai to learn how to respond effectively to RFEs and position your organization for a successful H-1B process. Topics covered will include:
- Establishing a Bachelor's degree requirement for a position
- Creating a nexus between beneficiary’s skill set and relation between his/her degree and occupation
- Providing evidence that a position qualifies as a “specialty occupation”
- Adapting to the new Electronic Registration Process and how it will affect the H-1B lottery timeline
- Understanding the impact of the Electronic Registration Process on international students under OPT
