Examining the Biden Administration’s Proposed H-1B Work Visa Rules Changes via TechTarget
Ian Wagreich was quoted in a TechTarget article discussing the potential impacts of the Biden Administration's proposed changes to the H-1B work visa system. The changes are intended to reduce fraud in the visa lottery system.
However, they may also complicate the employer process for hiring visa workers, as the changes would redefine the term “specialty occupation,” which could lead to a narrowing of the category and increased requests for additional documentation and denials.
Wagreich said that the proposed H-1B visa regulations are trying to "cut down on multiple registrations by related entities to try to keep companies from gaming the system." He added that the rule change will likely “significantly lower” H-1B lottery registrations.
