    H-1B Work Visa Denials: The Solution 

    Many foreign workers are finding it difficult to renew or obtain an H-1B working visa. Employers are also becoming frustrated at being unable to get visas for their workers. H-1B denials are becoming commonplace, as are massive RFE’s (Requests for Evidence).

    When all else fails, and that includes the hopeless appeal, I “appeal” such cases to the federal courts. Many times, such an appeal to federal court succeeds, either because the U.S. Attorney agrees to settle, or because the judge issues a favorable decision for the company and employee.

    There is no reason for employers and workers to give up and drop the case, when there is a federal judicial system, willing to exercise jurisdiction, and consider the merits of the H-1B claim.

    H-1B Working Visas Available for Foreign Nationals 

    The H-1B working visas allows foreign nationals to work in the USA in a specialty occupation that requires a bachelor’s degree.

    There is an annual cap on such visas of approximately 65,000, and each year the cap has been reached. On April first the cap re-opened allowing foreign workers to be sponsored by American companies for jobs in the U.S. There are all sorts of complex rules and regulations for this visa, and as can be seen in the attached article, the debate continues concerning this long-standing work visa program. Our law firm, Coane and Associates, PLLC regularly advises workers and employers on the intricacies of this visa, and we represent them before the Department of Homeland Security in obtaining such visas.

    Here is an interesting article on H-1B working visas from The Star Telegram.

    H-1B working visas still available 

    The immigration service continues to accept H-1B visa applications for specialty occupation jobs (those that require a bachelors degree). The quota opened at 65,000 visas on April 1, 2010, and prior to the recession, the quota would be exhausted by April 2. However, this year (and last year), work visa numbers continue to be available well-past April. In fact, the latest count from the government shows that only 23,500 visa numbers have been requested by sponsoring employers, since April 1, 2010.  The current quota is for H-1B jobs with a start date on or after Oct 1,2010, which is the new fiscal year for work visas.

      Mr. Coane,how does the H-1B work? Is there still availability for them after Oct 1?

      • Coane & Associates 3:37 pm on September 1, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        Yes, the H-1B visa is available for individuals to work in the USA. As you may know, there is a quota, but this year, it has not been an issue. There are still quota numbers available for individuals to start work on or after October 1, 2010. For further questions or assistance, feel free to contact me at 713-850-0066 or 305-538-6800.
