On March 31, 2017, USCIS released a policy memorandum rescinding the December 22, 2000, Nebraska Service Center guidance on H-1Bs for computer programmers. In its place, the agency issued revised guidance that provides support to the proposition that an H-1B may not be appropriate for a position that has a job classification and pay rate at the low end of the industry salary range, while at the same time listing specific job requirements and skills that are more complex and specialized. Our panel of experts will discuss the challenges presented by this new H-1B guidance and its applicability to computer programmers and other positions, and provide tips and strategies for successfully demonstrating that a particular position is a “specialty occupation.”
