NewsFlash! DHS and DOL Seeking to Radically Change H1B Process for Consulting Firms15 Jan 2021
This evening, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) released the text of a final rule that will change the definition of “employer” in the H1B context. Per this rule, end-clients would be required to submit petitions to the USCIS for H1B workers.
At the same time, the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) published a bulletin providing “clarifying guidance” related to this new rule. Per the rule, end-clients also would be required to submit a labor condition application (LCA) for any H1B worker. This rule is scheduled to go into effect on July 14, 2021.
MurthyDotCom will post a more detailed analysis of the DHS rule and the DOL bulletin in the near future.
