H-1B Cap Exemption for Related or Affiliated Nonprofit Entities teleconference

H-1B Cap Exemption for Related or Affiliated Nonprofit Entities

Thursday, May 26, 2011, 2:00 – 3:30 pm (EDT)

USCIS Office of Public Engagement would like to invite you to a teleconference on Thursday, May 26th at 2 PM (EDT) regarding H-1B cap exemption issues for nonprofit entities who are claiming cap exemption based on a relation to or affiliation with an institution of higher education under Section 214(g) of the Immigration and Nationality Act, as amended by Section 103 of the American Competitiveness in the Twenty-First Century Act of 2000 (AC21).

H-1B beneficiaries who are employed, or have received an offer of employment, at an institution of higher education or a “related or affiliated nonprofit entity”, are exempt from the 65,000 fiscal year cap in the H-1B classification.

USCIS is seeking stakeholder feedback on the interpretation of the term “related or affiliated nonprofit entity” and its effect in determining eligibility for exemption from the H-1B cap.
