Multiple Lawsuits Filed in Response to DOL and DHS Rules

Following the two rule changes from DOL and DHS that will significantly reshape the H-1B specialty occupation visa program, a group of technology consulting firms has filed the first (of what is expected to be many) lawsuits.

In the lawsuit introduced on Friday, ITServe alleges that the Department of Labor, without notice, “dramatically altered” the method for calculating salaries for the H-1B visa program and other employment-based green cards.

It is expected that there will also be challenges to the DHS rule, which is to go into effect in December.
