Mdivani Corporate Immigration Update
Can a company file an H-1B petition prior to April 1 and hire their foreign national worker immediately after filing? Answer: Yes, but only if the company or the employee are cap-exempt.

When the best candidate for a professional position, such as an IT developer, software engineer, or physician, is a foreign national, the employer may need to file for H-1B status for that worker.  Naturally, employers prefer to file the H-1B petition without delay so that they can employ the worker as soon as possible.  This creates two issues we must discuss with the employer.  The first issue is determining if the employee already has H-1B status, which may mean that the new employer may file a new H-1B petition without delay.  If not, then second issue is determining if the employer qualifies as H-1B cap-exempt.

Immigration Violations are Being Investigated.

 

The investigative arm of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (“ICE”), Homeland Security Investigations (“HSI”), has been heavily investigating companies since the HSI’s worksite enforcement strategy started in 2009.  Gone are the days where immigration officials bring vans and round up all the undocumented workers.  All of HSI’s resources are being dedicated to investigating businesses’ immigration compliance practices, which means employers are now being punished for not complying with immigration regulations.

Department of Homeland Security continues to investigate and prosecute employers in the retail and fast food industries for alleged immigration violations.  In September 2014, five owners of 7-Eleven stores in Long Island and Virginia plead guilty to "concealing and harboring illegal aliens" employed at their stores.  The plea arose from an extensive ICE investigation and it turned out to be the largest worksite enforcement forfeiture in United States history.
