H-1B Lawsuit Relating To Market Analysts Forwarded As Class-Action Suit
A US federal judge granted class certification to a lawsuit challenging USCIS pattern and practice of denying H-1B applications filed for market research analyst positions by US-based sponsoring employers.
“This ruling is an important victory as we can now ask the court to take action, in a single lawsuit, that will benefit hundreds of American businesses and the market research analysts they sought to employ”.
“Research shows that H-1B workers complement U.S. workers, fill employment gaps in many occupations, and expand job opportunities for all,” said Leslie K. Dellon, staff attorney at the American Immigration Council.

This lawsuit filed in a US district court by the American Immigration Council, the American Immigration Lawyers Association, and the 3-law firms of Van Der Hout, Joseph & Hall, and Kuck Baxter Immigration. The lawsuit pointed at the agency’s misinterpretation of the Occupational Outlook Handbook, which profiles hundreds of occupations in the local job market.
