On 21 May 2020, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) and IT Serve Alliance reached a settlement agreement, by which the H1B procedure now stands to gain for both the IT workers and employers. The settlement agreement puts forward the following:
  • The USCIS to withdraw the 2018 Contract and Itinerary Memorandum in its totality within the next ninety (90) days.
  • USCIS to annul the 1991 Regulatory Itinerary Requirement that necessitates an employer to submit a detailed itinerary, including dates and locations of services, when an H-1B employee is at work in various locations.
  • USCIS not to issue approvals for H-1B petitions with validity periods shorter than the time period requested by the H-1B petitioner, unless such decisions include or are accompanied by a brief explanation as to why the validity period has been limited.
If USCIS is unable to meet the deadlines, because of the COVID-19 pandemic or the limited availability of resources to receive or adjudicate RFE responses due to the COVID-19 pandemic, USCIS may have to extend the deadlines by sixty-days, provided USCIS notifies Plaintiffs’ counsel by email identifying the petitions before the deadlines expire.
