How This Impacts Mobility
The USCIS proposed rule and the DOL and DHS interim final rules are part of an effort by the Administration to reduce access to H-1B visa talent by increasing the cost to access this talent and narrowing the occupations scope of these foreign national workers to fill open positions in the U.S. The effort could therefore further reduce the relocation of employees to the U.S. during a time when relocations have been already reduced due to restrictions to help contain the spread of COVID-19. Worldwide ERC® will provide updates to this matter on our Federal Register comments to be filed and should there be any changes. If any member has questions about this update please reach out to Vice President, Member Engagement and Public Policy Rebecca Peters, firstname.lastname@example.org.
