On October 6, 2020, USCIS will be providing an advance copy of a regulation that will significantly change the definition of “Specialty Occupation” for H-1B visa purposes. The rule will narrow the definition of “specialty occupation;” require U.S. companies to “make real offers to ‘real’ employees” by closing loopholes and preventing the displacement of U.S. workers; and enhance DHS enforcement mechanisms. The rule will be published in the Federal Register on October 8, 2020 and goes into effect 60 days after publication (December 7, 2020).
