U.S. Announces New Norms for Hiring H1-B workers

Rediff.com., news, Posted: Mar 21, 2009

WASHINGTON, D.C.-- Indian professionals are dismayed to learn that new rules announced by the United States will make it harder to hire H1-B workers for U.S. companies receiving federal aid money, reports Rediff.com/India Abroad. U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services will start to accept petitions in about 10 days for new H1-B visas for the fiscal year beginning Oct 1, 2009. Now, companies that want to hire H1-B workers will be classified as H1-B dependent employers. They will now need to have a Labor Condition Application filed with U.S. Department of Labor at the time they file their H1-B application with USCIS, otherwise their petitions will be denied. This is part of the new Employ American Workers Act of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. People who have already prepared applications using old forms are being asked to submit an addendum from the revised form. Indians account for the bulk of the H1-B visas.
