Webinar Recording: H-1B Trends, Troubles, And The Look Ahead - September 7, 2017


​On September 7, 2017, CFGI recorded a webinar on the current H-1B trends and the look ahead. As the Trump Administration looks to implement the “Buy American and Hire American” executive order, new grounds for H-1B ineligibility are surfacing; and old interpretations are being resurrected with new twists. Requests for evidence and denials are multiplying, USCIS is disclosing employer-specific H-1B data, and DOL has proposed changes to the LCA form. This CFGI webinar analyzed the issues, and offers solutions and strategies for keeping your organization’s H-1B program viable. 

Discussion topics included:
•    Level I prevailing wage traps
•    Premium Processing unavailability blowback 
•    Narrowing fields of specialized study needed for an H-1B Specialty Occupation
•    Degree/Job “mismatches” and miscues
•    I-9 and H-1B portability troubles
•    Pitfalls of State Department’s H-1B “provisional” visa revocations
•    Risks and restrictions on H-1B and H-4 travel abroad
•    Proposed Changes to the LCA form from DOL

•    Angelo Paparelli, Seyfarth Shaw LLP
•    Mareza Estevez, J.D.

This webinar qualifies for 1 SHRM PDC.
