H-1b Cap Season Is Over: Now What?!

posted by: INSZoom INSZoom date: Jun 04, 2014 Immigration News comments: Comments Off on 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. Now that the lottery is over and USCIS is slowly working through the piles, firms and corporations are experiencing one of several scenarios: their cases are being receipted; premium-processed petitions are getting approved; and the unlucky cases that weren’t selected are slowly being returned. An immigration practitioner’s work doesn’t really end when that petition goes out the door – H-1B cap season lingers for months beyond the April 1st filing deadline, and before you know it, the next year’s season begins. As our customers recover from this year’s cap, we encourage them to utilize Zoom to streamline processes, by setting up their systems in such a way as to facilitate the most accurate reporting; to document rejected cases and bookmark them for FY2016; and to use the future immigration status fields to automate the foreign national’s status change to H-1B holder on October 1st. Share your best practices tips in the comments section below! How do you use Zoom to help you prepare for a new H-1B cap season?

Holiday Season to H1B Cap Season of 2014 (Part 2)

posted by: INSZoom INSZoom date: Jan 13, 2014 Enterprise Immigration, Immigration News, Immigration Stories comments: Comments Off on Holiday Season to H1B Cap Season of 2014 (Part 2)
by Anuj Sarin Hope my earlier blog helped you in the process of preparing yourself and your organization to file for the H-1B’s. In this blog I shall focus on activities that involve compliance but are intrinsic to the H-1B process.
  1. Ensure identified resources are eligible for the H-1B based on specialty occupation requirements, 16 years of equivalent US education, and / or any other internal criteria and provide the Units with the list.
  2.  Determine the wages to be paid; you need to consider the following before determining the wage to be paid
    • Union (Collective Bargaining) Agreement (if any)
    • Wage Survey
    • Wage paid to similarly employed workers in the geographic area
  3. Ensure that the Wage survey, used is the latest.
  4. Let your Compensation team know of the wages that need to be paid to these H-1B employees.
  5. Once LCA requirements are identified (refer comments in my earlier blog) make sure to send out the Posting notices to the locations for which they are being procured.
  6. Start procuring the LCA’s. You may want to put a future start date on these LCA’s to maximize the time that you can get.
  7. If 3rd party placement of resources is involved, work with the Sales or Client Engagement or concerned teams to have valid and updated Client letters, SoW’s or Contracts.
  8. Follow up on LCA postings and once posting period is completed ensure that you receive the posting notices back.
  9. Update the Public access files with the posting notices and the LCA’s once certified by the DOL.
  10. Check your Public Access files to ensure that they contain the updated documents such as benefits, compensation structure, relevant policies and process documents, etc.
  11. Ensure that the form versions you have are the latest.
By when should all the activities be started and/or completed? This would depend upon the volume of H-1B’s that you need to file. You could look calculating these dates keeping in mind the filing window of 1st 5 working days in April 2014 and back working based on your volume and processing capability. The time to process has begun folks, forget about the holiday season, roll up your sleeves and get to work. The rewards for the effort that you are going to be putting in, will be visible in the smiles and thank you notes you would get from employees on intimating them about the approval of their H-1B’s probably starting June 2014 or earlier if the case is filed under premium processing.
