Today, immigration practitioners and employers have needed to adapt to a myriad of changes in the H-1B professional worker program. It started a few years ago with stricter USCIS requirements on an H-1B employee’s itinerary if placed at an off-site work location. Then, in January 2010, the USCIS released the Neufeld Memo which redefined the employer-employee relationship, and made it harder for staffing firms to apply for H-1B visas.
This presentation outlines how the USCIS has implemented this memo by issuing lengthy Requests for Evidence (RFE) on the ‘right to control’ issue, what to expect from a typical RFE, as well as how to properly respond to these RFEs to give H1B cases the best chance for success.
