To take on a new employee, it is essential for employers to make sure that employee is either a U.S. citizen, has a valid work permit and Social Security card or has a valid green card. A common way for a non-U.S. citizen to work in the United States is with an H-1B nonimmigrant visa. At Law Offices of Hussain & Gutierrez, we help employers check their prospective employees to make sure they have the proper credentials to legally work in the United States.
H-1B Visas ∙ Specialty Occupations
We also help employers with H-1B nonimmigrant visas. The H-1B visa is a legal instrument for employers to help bring prospective employees working in specialty occupations to the United States. To qualify, the nature of the position must generally require a bachelor’s degree as a minimum requirement for the position, the degree requirement has to be common to the industry or the work must be so complex that it can only be performed by someone with a bachelor’s degree or its equivalent.
The types of workers who can qualify can include:
- Medical and health care professionals
- Social scientists
H-1C Visas ∙ DOD Development Workers
In addition to H-1B visas for specialty workers, we also help clients with H-1B2 visas for Department of Defense (DOD) researchers and development project workers. To qualify, a DOD project must be a specific research and development project or coproduction project provided under a government-to-government agreement administered by the U.S. Department of Defense, and the project must require project workers with bachelor’s degree or higher or its equivalent to perform the duties of the project.
H-2C ∙ Fashion Models
Fashion models of distinguished merit and ability can be eligible for a visa for a position requiring a fashion model of prominence.
