LARGE DEFENSE CONTRACTORH-1B VISAS GONE WRONGWIDEARC-IT CONSULTING COMPANYHOSPITAL AND DOCTOR

Overview

A hospital in Georgia used a major corporate labor and employment law firm to handle an H-1B visa for one of its physicians, but the attorneys filed the case incorrectly because they did not have the necessary healthcare immigration expertise. When it was time to file for a key physician’s green card, they discovered that the H-1B visa was filed incorrectly and the physician was out of status and working without authorization.

Problem

Hospital was at risk of losing significant revenues and its ability to care for patients. Because he was out of status, a key physician had to stop working and return to his home country as it is no longer lawful for him to live and work here. He faced the loss not only of his salary, but his entire investment in residency and fellowship in the United States. He could not file for a green card, and the hospital was about to lose a significant return on investment it made in this physician throughout the recruitment and onboarding process.

Intervention

We immediately strategized a plan of action to address this gross mistake. We acknowledged the mistake to USCIS and filed an extraordinary circumstances application with request to reinstate the doctor’s status. USCIS approved the case.

Results

The doctor was approved for the correct visa and his status was reinstated retroactively, so he did not have to leave the country. Our swift action and creative solution allowed the physician to remain in the United States while his case was sorted out. His status was quickly reinstated, enabling him to continue his important work in caring for patients. The hospital did not lose revenues and received a return on the investment it made in the physician. The physician also referred 2 of his colleagues to work in the hospital, saving the hospital significant recruitment efforts.

H-1B VISAS GONE WRONGLARGE DEFENSE CONTRACTORWIDEARC-IT CONSULTING COMPANYHOSPITAL AND DOCTOR

Overview

A technology company that relied on many H-1B workers received an H-1B audit from the U.S. Department of Labor. During the same year, all of the H-1B visas that the company filed were denied by USCIS. The company came to us to help with the audit and to obtain approvals for the H-1B visas that were denied.

Problem

Company was at risk to lose a contract worth $500,000 because it was unable to get the visas for key employees approved. The company was also facing $250,000 in fines and criminal penalties in the Department of Labor investigations. The executives of the company were unable to properly run its operations in light of the audit.

Intervention

After the company hired us, we prepared a full response to the Department of Labor audit. We advised the company on strategies to mitigate its damages and mitigate its risks of fines and criminal penalties. At the same time, we filed several appeals and actions on the denied H-1B visas.

Results

We were successful in negotiating a deal with the Department of Labor that resulted in no fines and no criminal penalties to the company and its owners and executives. Multiple H-1B visa applications were later approved, and the company was able to fulfill its contracts and obligations. Company’s revenues increased by 15% following that year.

WIDEARC-IT CONSULTING COMPANYLARGE DEFENSE CONTRACTORH-1B VISAS GONE WRONGHOSPITAL AND DOCTOR

Overview

An IT consulting company came to us after an L-1 visa application for its Chief Operating Officer was denied. The company could not move forward with its operations expansion without its COO.

Problem

Company was at risk of losing a key employee and was unable to properly run its business operations in the United States because its first attorney failed to obtain the L-1 visa status needed for that employee. Company was at risk of losing key contracts because it was unable to recruit and train enough consultants on time without the COO.

Intervention

After the company hired us, we devised a completely different strategy to overcome the prior denial. We rebuilt the case from scratch to ensure we had all of the critical documents in place when we filed the case.

Results

The company received the visa approval in less than a week after we filed the case with USCIS. The COO happily relocated to the United States and continued the business operation expansion by joining up with a larger IT company through a joint venture agreement. This momentous business deal could not have been possible without the COO.
