This RFE has everyone panicked and stumped.  This year, CIS specifically targeted computer programmers working for Level 1 Wages.  They justify this decision by citing a passage from the Occupational Outlook Handbook stating some employers hire computer programmers with an Associates degree as the prerequisite.  This does not meet H1B specialization requirements that state a…

Here’s how: get help!  This is the toughest RFE we’ve seen since the Nightmare and it’s got everyone panicked. This year, CIS targeted computer programmers across the country petitioning for H1B visa status with the Level 1 Wages RFE.  In this RFE, CIS states that the job of computer programmers at Level 1 Wages is…

Until this year, the scariest RFE out there was The Nightmare RFE, also known as the Kitchen Sink because there’s literally everything in it.  This year, CIS rolled out an even more difficult RFE: the Level 1 Wages RFE, targeting computer programmers.  What’s scary about this RFE is the sheer volume of it, how nobody…

This year, CIS rolled out a new RFE that may be even more terrifying than the notorious Nightmare RFE.  Computer programmers working at Level 1 Wage across the country are receiving RFEs claiming that their job does not meet minimum H1B education requirements.  The rationale behind this is that the Occupational Outlook Handbook states some…

The short answer: get help!  This is the most difficult RFE we’ve seen in many years, and definitely the most widespread.  The sheer volume of Level 1 Wage RFEs pouring in from CIS onto H1B candidates is insanity.  It is more important than ever that we take a stand and answer these RFEs for the…

The H1B RFE of the year is the Level 1 Wages RFE. In this RFE, CIS targets computer programmers at Level 1 Wages arguing that because these professionals are paid Level 1 Wages, their position is entry level. They then reference the Department of Labor’s Occupational Outlook Handbook (OOH) in the part that says sometimes…

This year, CIS has come up with a creative new way to come down on computer programmers petitioning for H1B visa status: Level 1 Wages. Here’s how they’re justifying this new RFE: The US Department of Labor’s Occupational Outlook Handbook (OOH) is what CIS uses as a references to determine whether or not a job…

This year, CIS has rolled out a troublesome new RFE that targets computer programmers petitioning for H1B status.  In this RFE, CIS wrongfully assumes that just because a job is set at Level 1 Wage it is an entry level position.  CIS also wrongfully assumes that entry level computer programmers can be hired with just…

Employment issues are this year’s justification for the slew of RFEs CIS issued targeting computer programmers applying for H1B visa status. The problem arises when employers mark the occupation as Level 1 Wage on the Labor Conditions Application (LCA) they must file. CIS released a memo in late March indicating that computer programmers at Level…
