Hi,

I'm a physician started working on J1 waiver last year.
We applied for NIW and my husband got EAD.

One of my colleague who is on J1 waiver, working with the same
employer for almost 3 years, was refused to have a support letter
from DOH, saying that he is not meeting the waiver requirements
regarding working hours. I also do the same hours.

To be on safe side I want to apply for Green card through the Employer
based Immigration also.

Do I need the letter from the DOH either now or in future to get the
green card through the employer ?

Please suggest me.

Thanks in advance.

Did they audit the practice ?

For PERM based GC, you wouldn't need anything from DOH. I'm in the process and I've not been asked so far.

Interesting question though... would at any stage you have to show that you have fulfilled 3 yrs of HRR.

Thank you for your quick reply.

If they ask in the future, what we need to do ?

DOH won't be able to say that anyone didn't fulfill the hour requirements unless they audited the practice. They approved your colleagues J1 waiver based on the employers assurance that he will work full-time in the HPSA/MUA, they can't just turn around and say that that time committment is not sufficient as 'full-time' once time comes around to sponsor a NIW.

There is some sort of miscommunication between your colleagues attorney and the state DOH.
