The Level 1 Wages RFE is just another RFE that we now need to learn how to answer now, and how to prevent next year. In his informational video H1B RFE for Wage Level 1 for Computer Programmers, American Visa Law Group Managing Attorney Hasan Abdullah explains, “Well, obviously very simple: go with Wage Level 2 if you can. If you can’t go with Wage Level 2, maybe you want to try a different occupation. […] Some occupations are prone to RFEs on whether or not it’s a specialty occupation.” There are jobs like Computer Systems Analysis that are notorious for being a target for RFEs. If this is the route you choose to take next year, be sure to consult with a credential evaluator who works with H1B RFEs so you don’t end up just walking right into another RFE while trying to avoid this one.]]>

Approved! The Feared Level 1 Wage RFE!

1. Level 1 Wage does not mean entry level job. Many jobs that require more education than an entry level job would – including computer programming – require a lot of supervision and training on the part of the employer.  Recent college graduates coming into the workforce with a Bachelor’s degree but little to no work experience need to be supervised and trained to apply the specialized skills and knowledge they learned in school to the work environment.  That’s why jobs that meet H1B education requirements can be met at Level 1 Wages: employers need to do extra work to help new hires make the transition from college into the work force. 2. The OOH also states most employers require a US Bachelor’s degree for entry level computer programmers. That’s right, the same source that CIS uses to justify this RFE also states that the norm is for employers to meet H1B requirements for entry level computer programming positions anyway.  Although it does state that some employers will hire to this position with only a US Associate’s degree, it also states that in most cases a US Bachelor’s degree is required, even for jobs at entry level.  We can use these problems with this RFE to help you or your employee or client gain ground in the RFE response to strengthen their case.  When it comes to this employment issue RFE, CIS is simply wrong.  However, CIS is still the gatekeeper to H1B visa status, and it’s up to us to overturn these RFEs and set the record straight.  This is not an easy task, but at we have a 90% success rate when answering these RFEs.
