Last year, we wrote a an article on the H1B January 2010 Neufeld Memo – “Will Donald Neufeld’s 2010 USCIS Memo for H-1B Petitions be a Harmless Paper Tiger?”. This memo puts a huge emphasis on the Right to control. Many IT consulting firms have been discouraged to file new H1B visas just because of this particular memo. Although it has not proven to be a paper tiger, this memo has had a huge chilling effect on the H1B application. Fortunately, with our extensive knowledge and experience in immigration law, we have been able to tackle with each and every issue associated with this memo. We are proud to say that to this point in time, our team has successfully dealt with all the issues regarding the “right to control” that has caused so much fear in the H1B visa’s employers and so far, we have not received any denials based on this memo.

If you are an IT consulting firm or any firm which places employees in other companies, please know that this memo is not the end of your businesses.  We will encourage genuine firms to continue the good work to bring specialty occupation workers to this country.  After all, the reason the United States is a leader in technology is largely due to immigrant workers.

We take this opportunity to congratulate the team of Shah Peerally Law Group PC for their dedication and compassion.
