H-1B Filings for Next Fiscal Year

It is time to file H-1B petitions for fiscal year 2007, which runs from October 1, 2006 until September 30, 2007.  The first date on which new H-1B petitions can be filed is April 1, 2006 for employment beginning October 1, 2006.  As there are a limited number of H-1B visas available each year, we suggest that you contact us immediately regarding any “new” H-1B that you will need for the 2007 fiscal year.  In most cases, employees who presently have H-1B status, whether with you or another employer, need not worry about the annual cap.  Employees who are on F (student) or J (exchange visitor) status and are using an employment authorization card to work will need “new” H-1Bs and may need immediate attention in order to avoid gaps in employment authorization. 

Please contact José Olivieri or Kelly Fortier at 414.271.6560, or at jaolivieri@michaelbest.com, or kmfortier@michaelbest.com, or any other member of the Michael Best Immigration Group for assistance.
