The H-1B visa is the most common path for employers to sponsor foreign national employees for work authorization, but the visas run out every year and are subject to a lottery that will begin this coming March. The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services made significant changes to the H-1B visa lottery process that employers need to be aware of, including changes to filing deadlines and information needed to submit applications.  Join us as Lucrecia Knapp, Immigration Attorney at Berardi Immigration Law, discusses the H-1B lottery to help employers prepare for the 2020 changes.
