USCIS increases "targeting" of site visits to detect H-1B fraud

  1. Original Date Announced

    April 3, 2017

    USCIS will now take a "targeted" approach when conducting site visits to investigate fraud and abuse of the H-1B program. USCIS will focus on: 1) cases where USCIS cannot validate the employer’s basic business information through commercially available data; 2) employers with a high ratio of H-1B workers compared to U.S. workers; and 3) employers petitioning for H-1B workers who work off-site at another company.
