  • H1b from Non-Profit issues

    Hello all,
    I have done my Masters in USA . After my graduation I was working as a contractor via a USA Recruiting company directly. In general I have 2.5 yrs work in India before my Masters and total work exp after Masters going to 5 years. total. Now , one of my recruiting job was at university here. They offered me FTE . I was scared because of the lottery and the offer came 2 weeks before H1b i.e March . I was desperate for a contract. Couldn't get one and accepted my FTE from April 1st. Now, situation at the University is changing because of some reason and there might me a layoff coming in near future. They will put me on H1b from November as my 6 months is over by that time. Some of my friends got H1 in this year and some don't. My STEM expires June 2015. Based on this situation, should I go back to contract. I have one offer . University job pays very low compared to my experience. But I accepted the offer as no hassle H1 and job security. But I myself not sure if it will stay . Also,if I get layoff in H1b, I cannot transfer my H1 . That was also a big issue. What should I do? I am not sure what to do...I talked with lawyer at the University and she told me she cannot file H1 under normal quota.

      You cannot file a normal quota case as the cap has closed, but as you know, the university can file a cap-exempt H-1B on your behalf. You can take the contract job and if they file the H-1B for you in next year’s cap and you get chosen in the lottery, you will be able to work even after your OPT expires. Of course, the dilemma is that you have no guarantee that you will get chosen in the cap if you go with the contract job. Is this other employer willing to file H-1B for you even if you stay with the university? However, if you think the University will lay you off, maybe your best option is to go to the other employer and take your chances with the cap next April 2015.
      You need to speak with an independent attorney to really talk about all your options. You may visit here to speak with an immigration lawyer: http://consultattorney.visapro.com/
