Trustees

increased demand for trustees. Those are lawyers who volunteer to
assist clients, refer cases and clean up files when another
lawyer can no longer maintain his or her practice." For the full
story, see here.

  1. Roger Algase, Attorney at Law's Avatar
    This is to add to my comment in the February 25 ID issue concerning the January 8, 2010 Neufeld memo dealing with the employer-employees relationship for H-1B filing purposes. In my previous comment, I mentioned that the H-1B regulations allow for filing by agents who are not employers in certain circumstances. This exception to the general requirement that only an employer can file an H-1B petition is acknowledged in the Neufeld memo itself. See footnote 11 on page 7 of the memo, which discusses 8 CFR Section 214.2(h)(2)(i)(F).

    The example that the Neufeld memo gives of a permissible H-1B filing by an agent, rather than an employer, deals with a fashion model. It would be easy for an inexperienced H-1B adjudicator (or anyone else, for that matter), to conclude that only agencies for fashion models, who are in a special H-1B category by themselves, are allowed to file H-1B petitions as agents.

    However, the above regulation provides that agents for any workers who are traditionally self employed or who use agents to arrange short term employment with numerous employers can file H-1B petitions. One does not necessarily have to be a fashion model in order to have an H-1B petition filed by an agent. To this extent, the choice of fashion model as an example of a permissible filing of an H-1B petition by an agent, rather than an employer, could be confusing to the point of being misleading.

    I may be reading too much into the Neufeld memo's use of this one example, but it would be consistent with the clear purpose of the memo, which is to invalidate, or to lead to the rejection/denial of H-1B petitions filed by any petitioner who does not meet a much stricter standard for qualifying as an employer than the standard actually contained in the applicable regulation, as mentioned in my previous comment.

    Thank you for posting the comment I had originally submitted in letter form on real time comment section of 02/25/ID issue. I was dreading having to write it all over again in order to comply with the new format. I am also honored to be one of the first (or perhaps the first?) to comment in the real time format.

    It is also good discipline to see one's comments appearing instantly upon clicking the send button. We now have to think more carefully.

    What's up with this Blog and RSS feed stuff instead of Letters to the Editor. I'm lost and not that High-Tec. What are we supposed to do with this?
  4. Editor at ILW.COM's Avatar
    Thank you Mr. Algase and Mr. Murray for your letters. We have moved to a new format for letters. Readers can now post their comments directly to our Immigration Daily blog. To do so, simply click on the link at the end of the daily called "Comment on this issues of Immigration Daily", type in your comments in the window on the page, add your name and click on the "post" button. To make it easy for our readers transition to this new format, we will post letters we receive at editor@ilw.com to the blog for the time being. We thank you in advance for your continuing comments.

    For whatever it is worth, I hate the new comment format as I do not like clicking on links for content when that content is not significantly tangential to the item. That said, I can understand why you might like it (in part perhaps for the reason I do not like it, it cuts down on the number of people reading comments, some of which can be inflammatory) and I have to admit that I do not find it technically daunting - I am just too lazy to always check out the comments now.
  6. David D. Murray, Esq.'s Avatar
    So what are the rules about these blog posts? Any word limit? Any editing, like in the old system? Or does it just get posted as written?
    I'm confused. Is this going to turn into an unsupervised free-for-all?
