H-1B sponsorship is offered by U. S. employers for Foreign Nationals working for those employers in Specialty Occupations which require at least a bachelor's degree (or the equivalent in education and experience). Approved H-1B employees can work for the sponsoring employer for 3 years in the first instance.
All cap-subject H-1B petitions (those limited by the annual national quota) must be filed with the Immigration Service during the first five business days in April 2019.
Now is the best time for employers to decide whether they will file H-1B petitions in April and for whom. It is good to both start the internal discussions and to initiate the process early because normal preparation of the H-1B Petition can take 30 to 45 days during this busy season.
Please feel free to contact the attorneys of Iandoli, Desai & Cronin now with your questions and concerns.
