H-1B RFEs and Denials: Our New Reality - Recording (.MP3)
Until last year, an H-1B denial was unthinkable except in rare cases. Now, lengthy requests for evidence (RFEs) and denials are possible every time you file a transfer, an amendment, and (most definitely) with cap cases. How do you manage client expectations? Is there a strategy to help avoid receiving an RFE for every case? Are examiners now required to issue a minimum number of RFEs and denials? Our panel of experts will discuss the most recent trends, lessons learned from last year, and what developments are on the horizon.
