Angelo Paparelli Quoted in a Bureau of National Affairs Article on Problems with H-1B Adjudications

Angelo Paparelli was quoted extensively in a Bureau of National Affairs article on problems in H-1B adjudications, published on August 21, 2014.  The article notes reports that U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has narrowed the "specialty occupation" definition, which is making it very difficult for some to obtain H-1B highly skilled visas.  Mr. Paparelli noted, among other things, that this is "a long and festering problem that has not gotten much media attention.  Most of the focus is on the shortage of visa numbers, but when you lift up the cover and look under the hood, that's only the beginning."  He said the employer's standard, rather than the Department of Labor's Occupational Outlook Handbook (OOH), should apply.  He also noted that sometimes the OOH standards are applied incorrectly.  The article is available at no charge by registering HERE.
