H-1B visa: Outsourcers and IT staffing companies score big win with government settlement

Filed: O-2 Visa Country: Sweden



After two courts ruled against a federal government policy on the use of H-1B visa workers by staffing and outsourcing companies, an industry group has won a major victory in a settlement with the government amid an ongoing lawsuit.

The agreement between the government and the ITServe Alliance, which represents firms that place foreign workers at U.S. companies, requires U.S. Citizenship and Immigration to scrap a 2018 policy memo widely seen as a blow to the IT staffing and outsourcing industry. The memo, which according to the deal made this week must be tossed out within 90 days, requires companies placing H-1B holders at third-party firms to provide the government with evidence for the duration of the requested visa term of where the foreign citizens will work and what jobs they will do.
