H-1B September 2009 Update

leave a comment »

In the H-1B count released by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) the H-1B cap subject petitions count was 46,000 as of September 18, 2009 and approximately 20,000 petitions qualifying for the advanced degree cap exemption had been filed. USCIS will continue to accept both cap-subject petitions and advanced degree petitions until a sufficient number of H-1B petitions have been received to reach the statutory limits, taking into account the fact that some of these petitions may be denied, revoked, or withdrawn.

USCIS has warned that it will deny or revoke all petitions filed by an employer for the same H-1B worker if more than one filing was discovered.  So, if multiple petitions are discovered by the USCIS, it will retain all fees and either deny the petitions or, if the petition was approved, USCIS has the right to revoke the petition.
