THE NEUFELD MEMO REVISITED AND THE H-1B VISA CLIMATE: The New Face of Enforcement in the H-1B World.

As a result of increased site visits and a general inclination to decrease the number of H-1B’s approved, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services ("USCIS") published a watershed memo on January 8th, 2010 (“the Neufeld Memo”).

The Neufeld Memo also put enormous pressure on employers to satisfy additional evidence requirements justifying any work performed by an H-1B visa holder off of the H-1B visa petitioner’s premises. Additionally, the Neufeld Memo added additional requirements for H-1B petitioners to obtain H-1B extensions.
