H-1b Cap Season is over: Now What?!

By Karen E. Smith

 

H-1B cap season. To some it instills excitement, to others dread, and to everyone, it means a laborious 3+ month season of late nights, working weekends, paper cuts and headaches.

 

This year’s total number of H-1B cap filings was about 172,500 (as reported by USCIS), an increase of almost 40% over last year’s total filings. This type of growth is exciting to see, and many analysts say it is a sign of our economy’s post-recession recovery.

The Need:

 

  • Increased Enforcement: There are indications of rising I-9 enforcement efforts, targeting a wide-range of companies, regardless of size or location. If Congress acts on immigration reform, we expect enforcement to be ratcheted up even further because mandatory E-Verify requirements are an integral part of all proposed immigration bills.

Globalize Your Firm

By Umesh Vaidyamath

 

In the old days, it was only the big companies that were global. In recent years, mid-size companies began to go global. Now it is common for even start-ups of a handful of people to be spread across the globe. This development was un-thought of only a few short years ago.

 

Globalization is of two kinds: globalization of markets and globalization of the workforce; globalization of sales and globalization of labor; globalization of output and globalization of input. Markets of companies are being globalized and so are their workforce.

Five Reasons Why Immigration is Important in Overall HR Strategy

Five Reasons Why Immigration is Important in Overall HR Strategy

By Umesh Vaidyamath

 

1.   Access to Talents/Skills: In their overall hiring strategy, businesses need to have a way to access talent/skills not easily available in the US. There is an acute shortage in the “STEM” (Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics) workers in the US. It is critical for a company to access outside talents and skills to survive in the marketplace.

 

2.   Short-term vs. Long-term Employment: A major decision for an employer is whether or not to sponsor an employee for green card. The decision depends on whether the employer needs are short term or long term. There are pros and cons of seeking short-term vs. long-term employees (including significant obligations of sponsoring nonimmigrant work visa, and significant advantages thereof) that an employer needs to understand to make an informed decision in this regard.

As everyone welcome’s the New Year Immigration professionals working on US immigration have to brace themselves for the onslaught of the H-1B cap filing that opens on April 01, 2014.

 

With only 65,000 H-1B’s available, of which 5800 are reserved for Nationals of Singapore and Chile and an additional 20,000 for people with Masters degree from a US university all that can be done is to file the application with the USCIS within 5 working days of the H-1B quota opening. Selection of the applications through the lottery is something that we can’t do anything about.
