Ongoing Delays in H-1B Petition Processing and Adjudication

Employers and H-1B applicants are currently experiencing delays in adjudication of their pending H-1B petitions. According to the AILA, between the California Service Center and the Vermont Service Center, there appears to be gestimate of as many as 17,000 cap-subject H-1B petitions (approximately 20% of the 2013 cap cases) which were filed between April and mid-June 2012 and remain unadjudicated. 

As we approach October 1, 2012, some F-1 OPT's who were granted employment authorization pending H-1B petitions will suffer loss of employment authorization on September 30, 2012, in only two business days! This presents hardships not only to the workers but also the employers. 

Currently all of the employers that filed the cap petitions with the expection of available resources beginning from October 1, 2012 will suffer difficulties in their businesses because of the unavailability of these professional worker resources. It is hoped that this ongoing delays be resolved as soon as possible in one way or another.
