U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services issued a policy memorandum on Feb. 22 clarifying what kinds of evidence will be necessary to establish eligibility for H-1B status when the beneficiary will be employed at one or more third-party worksites. The memorandum became effective upon its issuance and adjudicators will apply the new guidance to all new H-1B petitions as well as requests to extend or amend H-1B status.

BAL has prepared an analysis of the policy memorandum, including the evidence that USCIS adjudicators have been instructed to review and the practical consequences for employers. Read the full analysis by completing the form below.
