    Employers seek predictability when hiring employees. You don’t need to be a mathematician (although that might help qualify you as an outstanding researcher) to know that the odds of being selected in U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services’ H-1B cap lottery have decreased over the past four years. Each year the number of applicants for the H-1B cap lottery has increased, while the number of available H-1B visas has remained constant.

    United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has started to notify employers of whether their H-1B petitions were selected in USCIS’s fiscal year 2017 random selection process, or “lottery,” that took place in April of 2016. Approximately 85,000 H-1B workers selected in the quota will begin work in the United States on October 1, 2016, or shortly thereafter. The H-1B lottery selection provides employers with a useful reminder to reexamine the relevant regulatory obligations that attach with sponsorship of an H-1B employee.
