Last week the Trump administration announced additional and strict requirements to be met by employers who seek to hire foreign workers.
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) said in a new policy memo that it will require “detailed documentation” about H-1B workers employed at third-party work sites to ensure employees are filling a specialty role for which they were hired.
The policy specifically aims to target smaller companies that are serving larger companies or third parties with their foreign employees.
The policy memorandum states that employers must provide contract and itineraries for employees who will work at a third-party location. Employers will have to provide additional documentary evidence to demonstrate the nature of work and the employer – employee relationship.
For any employment where the employee will be working off-site, additional corroborating evidence should be submitted which can include contracts and work orders to demonstrate actual work in a specialty occupation.
It has to be noted that these scrutiny’s have already existed. However, the agency, USCIS is requesting such details for higher number of petitions as compared to earlier. It is advisable to submit all relevant documentary evidence so as to avoid further inquiry thereby delaying the entire visa application procedure.
