BIGGEST H-1B USERS

Rate this Entry

by Chris Musillo


The US allows 65,000 new cap-subject H-1Bs in any fiscal year.  Added to that is another 20,000 H-1Bs for those who have graduated from US Master's degree programs.  There is no limit on cap-exempt H-1B employers.  Cap-exempt employers are nonprofit entities (or their affiliates) who are associated, owned or attached to a university.  Some research facilities are also exempt from the H-1B cap. 


Computerworld reports that 134,780 cap-subject H-1Bs were approved in fiscal year 2013 (the filing period for cap-subject FY2013 H-1Bs was April 1, 2012 - June 12, 2012).  This is the greatest number of filings since FY2007.  Computerworld notes that all of the top H-1B users are all technology companies.  There are not any healthcare companies anywhere near the top of the list.  Will Congress carve out a visa path for these badly needed healthcare workers?
