This memorandum is intended to provide guidance, in the context of H-1B petitions, on the requirement that a petitioner establish that an employer-employee relationship exists and will continue to exist with the beneficiary throughout the duration of the requested H-1B validity period. Given the confusion Computer Consulting Companies have faced recently, while documenting the employer-employee relationship, representatives would do well to read carefully and understand the requirements in light of this new memo. Please contact us to discuss the Neufeld Memo.
