Proposed Rules for Highly Skilled workers

DHS published in the Federal Register a notice of proposed rulemaking concerning certain employment-based immigrant and nonimmigrant visa programs for high-skilled workers. The proposed rule would codify existing agency guidance on the American Competitiveness in the Twenty-First Century Act of 2000 (AC21) and the American Competitiveness and Workforce Improvement Act of 1998 (ACWIA). The rule would also make changes intended to improve stability and job flexibility for certain workers, and would amend regulations governing the processing of applications for employment authorization.
