Regarding labor substitution

Hi,
This is not the thread I have to use for these questions..But somebody from this thread can answer my questions,,I would really thankful to them.

how long is labor certification is valid?

1.Can employer file a labor substitution by using the labor for which I140 is already approved?(The person left the company after I 140 applied and no 485 applied).
2.Can he revoke the approved 140 and use the underlaying labor for another I140?
3.Employer need to attach original labor to I 140 right? so one can not file multiple I 140s based on one approved labor?

Bush urges US Congress to lift H-1B visa limit--Rediff

Making a strong pitch for America to stay competitive in the face of emerging economies such as India and China, President George W Bush has urged the Congress to raise the number of H-1B visas that allow companies to hire foreign workers for scientific and high tech jobs.

"Congress needs to understand that nations like India, China, Japan, Korea and Canada all offer tax incentives that are permanent. In other words, we live in a competitive world. We want to be the leader in this world," Bush said in a speech in Minnesota on Thursday.

To fill vacant jobs in the US, Bush urged the Congress to lift current limit on H-1B visas that allow foreign workers to get jobs in the United States. The Congress in 2005 capped at 65,000 the number of H-1B visas, a third of the 195,000 allowed during the technology boom.

"I think it's a mistake not to encourage more really bright folks who can fill the jobs that are having trouble being filled here in America, to limit their number. So I call upon Congress to be realistic and reasonable and raise that cap," Bush said, but did not say by how much he wanted the limit lifted.

He said that one part of the agenda to stay competitive was to study math and science, a theme he touched on in his State of the Union Address on Tuesday.

"It's one thing to research, but if you don't have somebody in that lab, well… And so I got some ideas for the Congress to consider. The first is to emphasize math and science early, and to make sure that the courses are rigorous enough that our children can compete globally," Bush said in a speech at the 3M Corporation.

He said there are more high-tech jobs in America today than people available to fill them. "So what do we do about that? And the reason it's important -- and the American citizen has got to understand it's important -- is if we don't do something about how to fill those high-tech jobs here, they'll go somewhere else where somebody can do the job."

"There are some who say, we can't worry about competition. It doesn't matter, it's here. It's a real aspect of the world in which we live," he said.

"And so one way to deal with this problem, and probably the most effective way, is to recognize that there's a lot of bright engineers and chemists and physicists from other lands that are either educated here, or received an education elsewhere but want to work here. And they come here under a programme called H1B visas," Bush said.

He said America should not fear competition. "It's important for us not to lose our confidence in changing times. It's important for us not to fear competition but welcome it."

Senior administration officials noted that the number of H-1B visas has fallen to 65,000 which in their estimation was 'too low' and that it was imperative 'to bump that up.'

". . . some of reports have called for increases of 10,000; others between 20,000 and 40,000. So there is a number of options on the table to be considered. But we'll work with Congress on that," said Claude Allen, assistant to the President for domestic policy.

Increasing the H1-B limit without increasing EB-GC quota is going to make our situation much worse. People will soon have to wait for 10 years before getting GCs. :eek:

NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) - The unemployment rate fell to its lowest level in nearly five years in January, the government reported Friday, as employers added a respectable 193,000 jobs to payrolls and paychecks increased more than expected.

The Labor Department said the unemployment rate dipped to 4.7 percent from 4.9 in December, the lowest since 4.6 percent in July 2001, just before the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. Economists had forecast that the rate would remain unchanged from December.

The drop in unemployment was the latest sign of a tightening labor market, which could put upward pressure on wages and prices in the months ahead.

On Wall Street, stocks fell as investors worried that the report makes further interest rate hikes by the Federal Reserve more likely.

Treasury bond prices fell right after the report was released but later recovered.

The department said average hourly wage rose 7 cents to $16.41, a 0.4 percent increase that was slightly more than the 0.3 percent gain forecast by economists.

Over the last 12 months, average wages are up 3.3 percent on a seasonally adjusted basis, the biggest 12-month change in nearly three years.

In the part of the report that normally gets the most attention, U.S. employers added 193,000 jobs to payrolls in January, up from a revised 140,000 gain in December. Economists surveyed by Briefing.com had forecast a gain of 250,000 for January.

But the unemployment rate and wage increase seemed to be getting most of investors' attention on Wall Street.

Anthony Chan, chief economist for JPMorgan Private Client Services, said he thinks the market might be overreacting a bit to the unemployment rate, which is based on a survey of households and is generally seen as less accurate than the survey of employers for the payroll numbers.

"I didn't see the average length of the work week picking up. I didn't see an increase in the labor market participation rate," he said. "That all makes me concerned that some of the tightening talk is a bit overstated."

Jeoff Hall, the chief U.S. economist for Thomson Financial, agreed that the unemployment rate could bounce back up in coming months as those now not counted as in the labor force start to look for or find jobs.

But he also said that the department's Bureau of Labor Statistics annual revision to last year's payroll numbers showed that the job reports from the last half of 2005 understated the strength of the labor market.

"It turns out the labor market is a lot tighter than we first thought," said Hall. "If you look at the last five months alone, we had 151,000 more jobs added than the BLS had first estimated."

March 27th will begin considering an immigration reform bill

http://www.kten.com/Global/story.asp?S=4448319


WASHINGTON The U-S Senate on March 27th will begin considering an immigration reform bill.

Senator Majority Leader Bill Frist today offered the time frame to Texas Senator John Cornyn and several other key lawmakers involved in the immigration debate.

Among the group was Arizona Senators John McCain and Jon Kyl, as well as Pennsylvania Senator Arlen Specter -- who chairs the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Cornyn says the Senate is likely to include a guest worker plan in its legislation, but whether it includes a path to legal residency will be hashed out in committee.

Cornyn chairs the Senate Judiciary subcommittee on immigration.

If people don't support what immigration voice is doing then we may see date moving from March 27 to April or may be May. There are several reasons.

1. There are number of people who still thinks that some magic will happen and the problem will be fixed pretty soon.
2. Some people are waiting and want to see some action from immigration voice.

People at IV believes that sitting and not doing anything is accepting the defeat. People wake up. This is your problem and nobody is going to help you. You have to help yourself. There are approximately 500,000 people or may be even more who are affected by retrogression. Out of which very few people have come forward and contributed. This is very sad. People are ready to wait for 5-6 years to get through the retrogression but are not ready to contribute at IV. Investing $100 or even more is worth than waiting for 5-6 years.

Choice is yours.

good article on yahoo

http://biz.yahoo.com/bizwk/060203/b3971001.html?.v=1

read this para in the last part of this article...


And let's not forget about immigrants. The workers who move to the U.S. each year bring with them a mother lode of education and skills -- human capital -- for free. One celebrated example is Jonathan Ive, the man who designed the iPod and iMac. Ive was born in England and educated at Newcastle Polytechnic University of Northumbria before joining Apple Computer Inc. in California in 1992.

Ive is not unique. Most of the workers who immigrate to the U.S. each year have at least a high school diploma, while about a third have a college education or better. Since it costs, on average, roughly $100,000 to provide 12 years of elementary and secondary education, and another $100,000 to pay for a college degree, immigrants are providing a subsidy of at least $50 billion annually to the U.S. economy in free human capital. Alternatively, valuing their contribution to the economy by the total wages they expect to earn during their lifetime would put the value of the human capital of new immigrants closer to $200 billion per year. Either the low or high estimate would make the current account deficit look smaller.

maybe it will help in the lobbying effort...thanks to logiclife from immigrationvoice for finding this article

Hello baskin,

Most of us understand and share your frustration. However, lets all ask ourselves what we have done to end this mess. Have we stood up for ourselves? Did we do enough to change the things for retrogression and backlog? Are most of us expecting that someone else will stand up for us? Is it that most of us are waiting for someone else to take the initiative, and we think that some miracle will happen by itself and they will get the benefit too?

Some of our friends seem to be quietly waiting. They visit this or other similar forums every now and then, read few post here & there, get some information about the latest events and expect that this problem will go away just by the virtue of being a silent spectator. Well! I have some news for you. The problem of retrogression and labor backlog is here, and it is here to stay - for very very long time. If we really want to find a solution to this problem, we need most of 500K-700K people to participate in petitioning the lawmakers about "our/your" grievances. And it starts with you out there. Each one of you, one by one. We live in a very interesting world. Most of the people in our community suffer because of retrogression & backlog problem. Most of us in this group "claim" that we are all well educated and contribute a lot to the society. Some of us have even created spreadsheet models to show how much this community contributes to the economy in terms of $$. These models and other big talk does not help at all, it just causes rotator cuff injury patting our own back. It does not help as people in our community do not seem to be willing to participate actively for their own issues/problems. Or maybe some of us are scared for no reason. This behavior pattern is not of a group of people who are "highly" educated but this behavior is of that group who doesn't understand the basics of society. But as I said, we live in a strange world. Communities/groups/societies that are lazy are always left behind and no one stands up for them because they do not stand up for themselves.

If most of you out there think that this is a big enough problem, then why do you just view this forum as "guest"? Why don't you come forward and do your contribution howsoever big/little it is? All those who are silently "watching" are in no way getting to be part of the solution. This response or lack thereof is part of the problem itself. The people who just watch silently and continue to be indifferent are simply helping towards creating a situation to drag this issue even further.

Our community seems to be suffering from the greatest sin. It's called "sloth". I do not know why these slackers don't want to fix the problem of their lives. Know that together we can really make the difference. And individually it doesn't mean a thing. Unless most of us join in a single voice so that our voices could reach the lawmakers, this problem will not be resolved.

You know Einstein said 'nothing happens until something moves'. If you out there really want to make the change, if you out there want to be part of the solution and not be part of the problem, just get moving. I beg you to please not continue to reward yourself with inaction. Together we can really make it happen.

Proposal to End LC Substitution and Require Prompt I-140 Filing
Posted Aug 26, 2005
©MurthyDotCom
The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) introduced a regulation in mid-August 2005 proposing an end to the procedure known as labor certification (LC) substitution. The proposed regulation has cleared the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and will be returned from OMB to the DOL. From the DOL, it will be sent for publication in the Federal Register as a proposed rule. There will be an opportunity for public comment on the proposed rule. It is likely to receive a great deal of response, including comments from us at The Law Office of Sheela Murthy, since there are many troubling issues with the proposal. Areas of concern are outlined here for our MurthyDotCom and MurthyBulletin readers.
©MurthyDotCom
Overview of the DOL Proposed Rule
©MurthyDotCom
In addition to the elimination of LC substitution, the regulation proposes a deadline of 45 days for an employer to file the labor certification in support of an I-140 petition. Since this is a DOL regulation, it can only pertain to the labor certification and not specifically to the I-140. The wording of the abstract on this regulation, however, appears to state that the labor certification must be filed with an I-140 within 45 days in order to be valid. Thus, it seems that labor certifications, which are now valid indefinitely, would have some type of expiration date under the proposed regulation. We adamantly oppose this 45-day requirement as unjust, impractical, and unrealistic for reasons we will explain below.
©MurthyDotCom
What is LC Substitution?
©MurthyDotCom
The substitution process permits an employer to substitute the beneficiary of a labor certification. A typical scenario is when a company files a labor certification for employee A and Employee A leaves the company. Employee B is substituted for employee A in the case. Employee B must have the required education and experience set out in the labor certification. Additionally, employee B must have possessed the required education and experience as of the date the labor certification was filed.
©MurthyDotCom
Background and Reasons LC Substitutions Should Continue
©MurthyDotCom
The problem with substitution is that, as with any procedure, there are those who try to take advantage and misuse the process. The DOL is trying to reduce the opportunities for fraud. In keeping with this, the proposed regulation expressly prohibits the sale, barter, or purchase of permanent labor certifications, as well as related payments. They will propose enforcement mechanisms for these prohibitions.
©MurthyDotCom
We understand that there are abuses. We agree that labor certifications should not be sold. We concur that the substantial money that can be made in the sale of labor certifications tends to attract the unscrupulous and fraudulent. The good should not be discarded with the bad, however. There are legitimate labor substitution cases. An employer that invests time, effort, and finances into obtaining a labor certification approval for an employee should be able to use that certification for a new employee if the first employee quits or, otherwise, if the employment relationship has been terminated. If the case could have been filed for Employee B just as well as for Employee A, there is really no reason not to allow Employee B to substitute for Employee A. Better mechanisms could be devised to determine whether there has been a sale, or if the company is filing labor certifications strictly for the purpose of using them for substitution cases at a later point. There are many methods by which this could be accomplished, including requiring proof of the existence of the initial beneficiary and tracking the volume of substitution cases filed by any particular sponsoring employer.
©MurthyDotCom
We note that the need for the substitution process is tied to the many years of delay within the DOL system. Employers were desperate to bring in highly skilled candidates and offering to help with a previously-approved LC was a win-win solution for all concerned. Now, with faster PERM processing, the need for substitution will likely reduce. Even with PERM, however, the process remains expensive and time consuming for most employers and employees. Eliminating the substitution process simply places another burden on U.S. employers and does not serve the purpose of protecting U.S. workers.
©MurthyDotCom
Rule for Pending LC Substitution Cases
©MurthyDotCom
The information that is available regarding this regulation does not address substitution cases filed prior to any change in regulation. This likely means that those who have already filed LC substitution cases before the publication of this regulation will be allowed to continue to take advantage of it.
©MurthyDotCom
Introduction of the 45-Day Rule to File I-140 Petitions
©MurthyDotCom
The proposed regulation contains a provision requiring that the approved labor certification be filed in support of an I-140 petition with the USCIS within 45 days! This, as noted above, is an enormous departure from the long-standing policy that labor certifications are valid indefinitely. This change also is, in the wording of the DOL, designed to reduce the likelihood of the submission of fraudulent applications. This type of time limit is simply not workable in the real world. We would urge the DOL to reconsider this short deadline and design a system that will eliminate fraud without penalizing legitimate applicants who may have waited for DOL action for years.
©MurthyDotCom
Why are 45 Days Grossly Insufficient to File the I-140 Petition?
©MurthyDotCom
We believe that the U.S. Department of Labor's proposal to allow only 45 days to file the I-140 immigrant petition fails to consider business realities and the government's own time taken to process cases. Below is an outline of some valid arguments as to why we believe the Department of Labor needs to reconsider its position.

*

First, the time required to compile the necessary information is often more than 45 days. The filing of an I-140 petition requires the interaction of the employer / sponsor, the attorney, and the beneficiary. The employer must supply information regarding the company and its finances. The beneficiary must supply proof of his/her qualifications. The attorney must explain the law and the procedures, then compile the evidence submitted to prepare the case that the employer must understand, review, approve, and sign off on before filing the I-140 petition with the USCIS. While some of the documentation and information may be obtained in advance, financial and time considerations often make it impractical for all concerned.

*

Second, the financial considerations involved will require advance planning if there is a 45-day limit. Given that labor certification processing times at the Backlog Processing Centers (BPCs) are uncertain and untraceable, much of the work required for the I-140 petition process generally awaits the receipt of the labor certification approval. Most employers are not willing to incur costs for its preparation in advance since an employee may decide to quit or leave the country at any time. So the time and costs involved in hiring outside, competent counsel often become prohibitive for the parties.

*

Third, the combined effort of the individuals involved with the I-140 can be slowed due to normal human events such as vacation, illness, business travel, and financial concerns related to the legal and filing fees that may be due.

*

Fourth, if documents are needed from abroad, the entire timeframe will likely extend even further.

*

Fifth, there can be legitimate delays in obtaining financial documents from the employer for the most recent tax period, even if the taxes are filed within the permitted timeframes.

*

Sixth, retrogression and concurrent filing issues affect the decision regarding the timing of the I-140 filing. If the case is eligible for concurrent filing, the beneficiary is likely to elect to take this route. The preparation of the I-485 for the beneficiary and his/her family may, however, require more than 45 days. There may be waiting times simply to get an appointment with the physician for the medical exam, delays in obtaining proper birth and marriage documents from abroad, or situations in which a person who is abroad needs to return to file the I-485. There are innumerable variations on this theme.

In response, the DOL might say to just file the I-140 if the I-485 cannot be filed within the 45 days. There is a problem if this is the approach. Once the I-140 is filed, the I-485 filing must wait until the I-140 receipt notice is issued. With retrogression, it may not be wise to file the I-140 and hope that the receipt notice arrives before the visa numbers retrogress. Forcing a beneficiary to make this choice, and potentially delay the filing of the I-485 for a substantial number of years, is simply unfair, especially considering that the DOL historically has taken several years to approve labor certifications, though nowadays they are starting to approve some PERM cases faster.
©MurthyDotCom
Even suggesting such a low estimate of 45 days to file the I-140 petition seems incongruous considering business realities as outlined above and considering that, in the government processing context, the USCIS has not been able to meet its target goal of adjudicating simple petitions and applications within six months!
©MurthyDotCom
Possible Solutions to Help All Parties
©MurthyDotCom
If the DOL has found that delays in filing the I-140 petition are tied to fraud, there are a number of alternatives that would be far better than setting a 45-day limit. While we would prefer no limit, the most obvious solution would be to set a substantially longer limit, of at least six months or a year, with perhaps a procedure for allowing filings to exceed the deadline if there is reasonable justification for additional time. We do not see a direct connection between fraud and a delay in filing. The delay can be attributable to a number of genuine circumstances as outlined above. If there is fraud, then procedures can be put into place to detect and prevent it. If money is needed for investigations, then efforts to obtain proper funding should be a priority, rather than creating arbitrary, blunt rules that penalize the many legitimate cases with the few that are fraudulent.

I understand why MurthyDotCom oppose such proposal from the perspective that they previously published an article citing the "benifit" of retrogression. - Very true benifit for their revenue. :mad:

To me, a fair rule would be keeping LC Sub but the case using LC Sub should have Priority Date as of I-140 ND.

I really appreciate all work immigrationvoice.org is doing, but personally I would donate money only if immigrationvoice could explore a lawsuit option - which seems to be a more effective approach than lobbying in our case. Just hear the President Bush speaking today;the man didn't even mention the plight of EB applicants. He just focused in the increase of H1B visas. I don't want to look negative at all a and hopefully laws will be enacted on our behalf, but I am sorry to tell you that if you educate Senators about our problem, chances are H1B's will be increased and illegal aliens will receive a permanent residency or at least guest worker permit. Notice that I didn't include what would happen with us ? Keep renewing our EAD and H1B's.

Explore a lawsuit option or at least give us an update on why that is not feasible and possible, then I will be glad to donate money and more people will come forward to do the same.

Why do you assume that your I-485 case would get approved so quickly ?

That's a good question. Listen, just like you, it's been a long time for me man...I even had my interview last summer with INS and the officer tole me that I need to wait for A#s...The funny part is that my i-140 got approved five month after the interview, one year after I submitted my I-140 and 485 to INS. What gets me is that they always give me crap...my labor took three yrs and they lost my lawyers address so I didn't know my labor got disapproved...anyways dude, it's crazy...I just want to get the GC so I can go back to school and follow my dream, that's all...I'm not as excisted about being here anymore...BTW, I like your comment about the lawsuit option...These politician aren't any better than the dictators that we have back home...Good luck :D
