Zero tolerance policy


Volunteer Moderator
Although it has not been made a federal register entry, the "zero tolerance policy" (not even tolerating a few minor immigration infractions like out of status for few days etc.) has been brought to an end.
However it is still at the discretion of the examiner. But definitely the RFEs will start to come down and may be wimpish responses to such RFEs (hopefully) will be tolerated...
Zero Tolerance

Have you heard about BCIS being more tolerant about filing deadlines this month due to Hurricane Isabel. I've heard verbally through a colleague but cannot find anything online about it.
Need help for H1-B visa stamping..

I came US on L2 visa that is valid till '15 Aug. 2005', I-94 valid till 15 Aug. 2005.

I applied for H1B visa. I got my approval on 25 Jan. 2005. But i didn't get I-94 with my H1-B approval. In my approval notice Consulate is 'Chennai' mentioned for stamping.

1. Can i still go to Canada to get it stamped?
2. I heard that even H1-B can cancelled during the stamping is it true? What may be case for cancellation? if yes then, In the worst case can i re-enter in US on my L2-visa, I-94.
3. Why I didn’t get my I-94 status on my H1-B approval notice? Is there any specific reason for that?
4. I don’t have any salary slip. Do I need carry salary slip to show for Stamping?

Employer not paying dues !

I am on H1-B for some time and work on contract projects across the country. My employer gets the money from the end-client via the time-sheets but doesn't pay me my share. What can be done in this case? I dont know if anybody else has gone through similar ordeal with desi companies.

Awaiting a response,

You need not worry.. Just call up the Dept of Labor and give them this information and your payment will be taken care of. they will keep your name confidential 100% and provide you advise.
Go to the specific dept of labor in which state you are working. They even call up the employer and ask them to pay if required.

Being Harrased by my past employer!

Being Harrased by my past employer!
My past employer is a desi company who doesn't pay consultants on time. Recently one of the employees threatened to sue the company and the CEO wants me involved as I was involved in hiring individuals and placing them. Am I liable or do I need to get involved???

I have filed for H1B. I had a problem in past, because of financial issues I was working outside the university (I was on F1) and I got a ticket for selling alcohol to minor(2002). I was ticketed for miscalculating the age(misdemeanor). I was just fined by court. Would it result in denial of H1B to me? Some one please help.

H1B Port of entry issues with date of entry


I had attended H1B visa stamping interview on with a client letter and letter from employee stating that the start date of my project is DateX. I am currently working with another company in India and i need to give a notice period of 3 months to resign from this job. For the same reason,
Q1) Can I enter US on a date after DateX that is indicated as my project start date or will I be rejected at the port of entry?
Q2) If after entering US, I start working with a different client under the same employer, will that be a problem later during my greencard processing?

Thanks in advance for your advise.
