DHS' WAR ON STAFFING COMPANIES APPARENTLY DOESN'T INCLUDE DHS

Rate this Entry

Those of you who follow H-1B developments know that a memo issued last month essentially tries to bar H-1B use when the employer places the worker at a third party site. The aim was to target IT staffing companies in an attempt to deflect criticism from Senator Chuck Grassley. Despite the fact that there are a whole host of unintended consequences (for example, doctors in some states are actually barred by law from being employed by the hospitals where they work and must be employed by physician groups  - bet you didn't think doctors' practices were staffing companies, but they are).

What galled me this week was a report indicating that DHS itself is completely dependent on staffing companies to carry out its own mission. According to CNN, there are more contract workers at DHS than full-time DHS employees. Sounds pretty hypocritical.
