Employee and Employer Relationship Details

Click on following link Because the language and reasoning of the January 8, 2010 USCIS memorandum on the subject of H1b employer-employee relationships is so convoluted, it is necessary to engage in a detailed analysis to demonstrate, conclusively, the legal and factual errors it contains. Because that memorandum is fatally flawed, it must be disregarded. It is not, after all, a regulation nor does it carry the weight of legal authority. By its own terms its use is limited:
"This memorandum is intended solely for the training and guidance of USCIS personnel in performing their duties relative to the adjudication of applications. It is not intended to, does not, and may not be relied upon to create any right or benefit, substantive or procedural, enforceable at law or by any individual or other party in removal proceedings, in litigation with the United States, or in any other form or manner."

Take care of your parents. THEY ARE PRECIOUS.

This was narrated by an IAF pilot at a Seminar recently on Human Relations :

Venkatesh Balasubramaniam (who works for IIT) describes how his
gesture of booking an air ticket for his father, his maiden
flight, brought forth a rush of emotions and made him (Venkatesh)
realize that how much we all take for granted when it comes to our

My parents left for our native place on Thursday and we went to the
airport to see them off. In fact, my father had never
traveled by air before, so I just took this opportunity to make him
experience the same. In spite of being asked to book tickets by train,
I got them tickets on Jet Airways. The moment I handed over the
to him, he was surprised to see that I had booked them by air. The
excitement was very apparent on his face, waiting for the time of
travel. Just like a school boy, he was  preparing himself on that day
and we all went to the airport, right from using the trolley for his
luggage, the baggage check-in and asking for a window seat and …

Backlog for EB1, EB2 & EB3

Following the release by the USCIS of their backlog statistics in September, many prospective immigrants began to reevaluate the idea of upgrading to higher preference classifications. Central to any such decision is the answer to the question "How long do I have to wait if I remain in my present classification?" The purpose of this article is to help applicants try and determine just how long that wait will be.

The answer to that question, like most things, is complex. It depends on several factors that are unknown at this time. These include:

·There is an unknown number of pending AOS cases that have not yet been classified or reviewed.
·In the case of EB2, there is an unknown number of EB3 applicants who are actively in the process of upgrading to EB2.
·There are additional cases in the pipeline, not accounted for by the available backlog information.

While it is not possible to predict wi…

FY2010 H1B quota

After many months of little or no movement, we are at last seeing an increasing number of new H1B petitions accepted by the USCIS under the fiscal year 2010 quota. As of November  27th, the USCIS reported that they had received approximately 58,900 petitions.
The annual quota limit is 65,000. The law provides special set asides of up to 6,800 numbers for petitions filed for citizens of Chile and Singapore, under special free trade agreements. Technically, this reduces the overall quota to 58,200. Most of the Chile/Singapore set asides, however, are returned to the main pool and used by "regular" H1B petitioners. Given that this is a relatively small number, however, it shouldn't delay by too long the date on which the quota is finally reached.Given the increasing number of filings, and the new sense of urgency that will undoubtedly result in more speculative filings by people hoping to get in while visas are still available, we can expect to see the quota reached most lik…
