US Senate Places Some Restictions on H-1B Hiring

leave a comment »

US Senate has placed some strictions in the stimulus bill on hiring of H-1B employees. US companies that will receive federal bailout money through the TARP bailout programme and will be applying to hire employees under the H-1B process must operate as “H-1B dependent companies” to hire new H-1B employees. In effect this means that US companies must attest to actively recruiting Amercian workers, and not displacning an American worker with an H-1B holder, and not replacing American workers that have been laid off with foreign workers.

We will continue to monitor the situation and keep you posted so please check back.
