  USCIS has now officially rescinded the 2010 Determining Employer-Employee Relationship memo and the 2018 Contract and Itinerary Memorandum.    On 21 May 2020, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) and IT Serve Alliance reached a settlement agreement, wherein the USCIS were to withdraw the 2018 Contract and Itinerary Memorandum in its totality within the next ninety (90) days.   USCIS within 29 days rescinded the 2018 Contract and Itinerary Memorandum and to everyone’s surprise ITServe Alliance received more than what they bargain for.  USCIS even revoked the 2010 Neufeld Memo along with the 2018 memo.   Per the new memo, the USCIS shall no longer apply either memo to H1B petitions, including for pending cases, motions, or appeals.
