USCIS Conducting H-1B Site Inspections


The United States Customs and Immigration Service (USCIS) is now conducting more than 20,000 random on-site inspections in 28 cities of businesses that employ H-1B nonimmigrant workers.


The purpose of the inspections is to verify that the H-1B employees are being paid prevailing wages and that they are employed in their positions of record.

Many of the visits - which are unannounced - are being conducted by contract USCIS employees, but at the very least affected employers must ensure that they have maintained proper documentary files for their H-1B employees, in addition to paying them prevailing wages and keeping them in the positions for which they originally petitioned the USCIS.
