Over this weekend, USCIS began sending “non-selection” notices for H-1B lottery candidates. USCIS has yet to issue a formal announcement regarding the end of the cap season, and we will be sure to keep all our clients updated once that announcement comes. Given the timing and the volume of lottery registrants, it is unlikely that there will be a second H-1B lottery for this year. Your Brown Immigration Law attorney will be in contact with you about the results.
Please note: Not every case has received a “non-selection” notice yet, as they are coming in on a rolling basis. Your attorney will reach out to you when a notice has appeared for your case.
New Learning Opportunities!
The Best Practices to Follow When Structuring a Reduction in Force (RIF) (Two Dates to Chose From)
Please join Managing Partner, David Zaritzky Brown, on August 30th at 1:00 PM CST for a new round of webinar learning (repeat on September 7th). As we have witnessed changes in capital markets and financial forecasting and seen the decline in certain industries some of our clients have had to grapple with the unfortunate decision to reduce headcount. Having seen both good and bad markets, David has counselled clients extensively on the best practices to follow when structuring a reduction in force (RIF). In this webinar David will discuss the impact a lay-off has on status and green card processing. He will walk through the benefits you can offer employees in this unexpected situation. After he goes over the major RIF related issues in the first 30 minutes, David stay on a generous Q&A time to provide answers to interested HR/Management attendees.
For those individuals who are interested in attending but away on the 30th, David will repeat this session on September 7th, also at 1:00 PM CST.

This session is intended for HR Managers and recruiters to better understand the key visa types employers use to hire key talent. Additionally, David will share best practices for hiring H-1B transfers to ensure it is a smooth and easy onboarding.
