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 employers hire entry level computer programmers with only a US Associates degree. H1B requires a US Bachelors degree or higher, or its equivalent.
This same section of the Occupational Outlook Handbook also states that employers usually DO require a US Bachelors degree for this position. The other problem with this RFE is that just because a job is set at Level 1 Wage doesn’t mean it’s actually an entry level position. That’s not how wage levels actually work; there are many other factors involved.
But tell that to CIS. There are many factors involved in this RFE as well and the sheer volume is nothing short of insanity.
The answer to this RFE requires an expert opinion letter along with documentation that the job in question is specialized to meet H1B educational requirements.
