H-1B Season is Upon Us . . . Will This Year’s Economy Bring a Lottery?

It is that time of year again! We always hear the accountants moan and groan about the approaching April 15th deadline each year but, you have to listen a bit more closely and you will hear (and see) the U.S. business immigration lawyers and attorneys manifesting their distaste for the April 1st filing date for “cap” subject H-1B professional and specialty occupations workers. Well, here we go again . . .

April 1st, 2011 marks the first day when prospective H-1B petitioning employers and prospective H-1B employees will be able to apply to the U.S. Department of Labor (“DOL”) for and Labor Condition Application (“LCA”) and Petition to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (“CIS”) for H-1B visa petitions for employment in the fiscal 2011-2012 year (“FY 2012”). Our advice to our H-1B employer clients continues to be that they need to think about filing H-1B petitions on (or very close to) April 1st for new and existing employees who will be eligible for a first-time H-1B visa to begin their employment on or after October 1st, 2011.
