Why employers can still file new petitions for H-1B Visa?

The H-1B visa program limits the number of cap-subject petitions to 85,000 each fiscal year. However, why thousands of new LCA petitions for H-1B visa could still be filed after the cap was reached? Why over 300,000 LCA petitions were filed each fiscal year?

Petitions for new H-1B employment are exempt from the annual cap if the beneficiaries will work at

1. Institutions of higher education
2. Non-profit entities related or affiliated to a higher education institution
3. Non-profit research organizations or governmental research organizations

Petitions filed on behalf of current or former H-1B workers who have been counted previously against the cap also do not count toward the cap. Accordingly, USCIS will continue to process FY 2013 and FY 2014 petitions filed to:

1. Extend the amount of time a current H-1B worker may remain in the United States.
2. Change the terms of employment for current H-1B workers.
3. Allow current H-1B workers to change employers.
4. Allow current H-1B workers to work concurrently in a second H-1B position.
5. Allow recapture of the time that H-1B workers spent outside the U.S.
6. Change status back to H-1B from other status like H-4 or F-1.

Texas-based Firm Indicted for Misuse of H1B Visa

An Indian American company based in Texas has been indicted by federal authorities on charges of fraud in the H-1B visa category and using it to create a low-cost workforce in the United States.

The multi-count indictment filed last month against top officials of the Dibon Solutions of Texas—Atul Nanda, Jiten 'Jay' Nanda, Siva Sugavanam, Vivek Sharma, Rohit Mehra and Mohammad Khan—alleges that the company paid H-1B visa-holding employees only when there was work.

According to the 15-page indictment filed last month and unsealed this month, the Nanda brothers, the owners of the company, along with others named in the court conspired to defraud the H-1B system.

The indictment alleges that Dibon hired foreign workers on H-1B visas and instead of paying them, used them to work for a third company and gave them the salary only when they worked for the third company.

The company "sponsored the workers on H-1B visas with the stated purpose of working at Dibon headquarters in Carrollton, Texas, but, in fact, required the workers to provide consulting services to third-party companies located elsewhere," the indictment alleges.

"Contrary to the representations made by the conspirators to the workers (and the government), the conspirators paid the workers only when the conspirators placed the workers at a third-party company and only if the third-party company actually paid Dibon first for the workers' services," it said.

Additionally, in Dibon's visa paperwork, it falsely represented that the foreign workers had full-time positions and were paid an annual salary, as required by regulation to secure the visas, the indictment alleges.

USCIS Announcement Regarding Premium Processing for H-1B Cap-Subject Petitions

The filing period for H-1B petitions subject to the fiscal year (FY) 2014 numerical cap begins on April 1, 2013. USCIS anticipates that it may receive more than 65,000 cap-subject H-1B petitions and more than 20,000 petitions filed on behalf of individuals with a U.S. master’s degree or higher between April 1, 2013, and April 5, 2013. This could be the first time since April 2008 that the H-1B cap will require a lottery. 

USCIS provides premium processing service for certain employment-based petitions and guarantees a 15-calendar-day processing time. Due to the historic premium processing receipt levels, combined with the possibility that the H-1B cap will be met in the first 5 business days of the filing season, USCIS has temporarily adjusted its current premium processing practice. To facilitate the prioritized data entry of cap-subject petitions requesting premium processing, and in accordance with 8 CFR 103.7(e)(3)(ii), USCIS is announcing that premium processing for cap-subject H-1B petitions, including H-1B petitions seeking an exemption from the fiscal year cap for individuals who have earned a U.S. master’s degree or higher, will begin on April 15, 2013.
