Fiscal Year 2013 H-1B Filing Cap Update
The filing season for H-1B nonimmigrant visas for employment to begin on October 1, 2012 began last month. So far, just over one-half of the 65,000 H-1B visas allotted to the H-1B "Regular Cap" have been utilized. Employers interested in sponsoring a worker on an H-1B visa who have not submitted a petition, should immediately do so in order to ensure visa availability. Please contact Koley Jessen’s Employment Labor and Benefits Practice Group to discuss options if you have questions.
