The US Labor Department to Begin Launching its Own Investigations into H-1B Violations

Practice Areas

By: Vandana Marath

As of July 31, 2020, United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) will start to share information about suspected labor law violations by H-1B employers with the US Labor Department. The Labor Department plans to use this information to launch its own H-1B workplace investigations for the first time. This policy change could lead to increased scrutiny for H-1B employers.

Information about suspected labor law violations by H-1B employers will come from USCIS worksite visits and H-1B visa applications.
