No Client letter from Government company for H1B RFE

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

My employer has filed for H1B this year and got an RFE to provide client letter (Employer-Employee relationship).

 

I'm currently working in EVC (Employer - Vendor - Client) model. Here the client is State Government firm. The client says they cannot provide letter on their letter head as it's against their policies. The employer says providing client letter would be strong case. I'm sure this is the case with all federal government agencies and though H1B still got approved working for them without having client letter.

 

Please suggest what are the other alternatives for getting this H1B approved.

I'm very worried. Please advise.

 

Thanks in advance!

I don’t think there is an alternative. They are pretty strict on client letter due to H1B abuses by the consulting companies.

The federal government? Really? So much for “buy American hire American”.

 

Anyway - i am guessing these people are not employed through the same middleman as you, maybe that’s what you need to look at.

May be few if not all provide the letter in some form.  Not everyone gets the RFE, may be those working there did not get RFE or were direct hires, too many variables. 
 

You are asked for it and you can’t opt out of that.

Your guess is wrong man! There are lot of consultants who work for Federal/State government clients.

Please re-read what the “guess” was. It was that the middleman is not the same as yours, who seems unable to get you what you need.

H1b's are dealt with by Lawyers, a Lawyer dealing with this type which is particularly under scrutiny would know how to respond.
