  • (1888PressRelease) April 11, 2017 - The Knowledge Group/The Knowledge Congress Live Webcast Series, the leading producer of regulatory focused webcasts, announced today that it has scheduled a live webcast entitled: H-1B Cap Subject Visa 2017: Exploring Key Issues, Trends and Alternatives.

    Event Synopsis:
    Companies in the U.S. use the H-1B program to employ highly skilled foreign professionals. With the continuous growth in today's economy, it is anticipated that more employers will seek H-1B's for their potential key foreign national employees in the coming year. However, as per the immigration law, only a limited number of H-1B work visas are made available each year, a statutory limit of 65,000 visa numbers for new hires, with an additional 20,000 for individuals with a Master's or Doctorate from a U.S. university. The applications for Cap-Subject H-1B petitions for FY2018 is fast approaching, so businesses need to be well-prepared for the upcoming H-1B cap season so that their H-1B petitions are properly filed and their foreign national employees have the greatest chance of success of obtaining an H-1B visa.

    In a two-hour LIVE Webcast, a panel of distinguished professionals and thought leaders assembled by The Knowledge Group will go beyond the basic of the Cap-Subject H-1B Petitions and will offer the audience with an in-depth analysis of the various implications of H-1B Visa. The panel will also provide a roadmap of practical moves in filling for H-1B Petitions and how to avoid the common risks and potential pitfalls.
