On March 29, 2019, the immigration team in Williams Mullen's Labor, Employment & Immigration Section filed more than 100 H-1B cap-subject petitions with U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services in this year’s FY2020 lottery. Attorneys Earl Baggett, Bill Benos, Hadeel Abouhasira and Tom Narvaez were joined by paralegals Brigid Prescott-Frank, Chrissy Hart, Maeva Williamson and legal administrative assistants Nicole Rushin and Debra Berry to help get the petitions out the door.
The H-1B visa program allows companies in the United States to temporarily employ foreign workers in “specialty occupations,” which are professional positions that require an individual to possess a bachelor’s degree or higher in a specific field of study to perform the essential duties of these positions.
