USCIS CHECKING SOCIAL MEDIA

AILA immigration attorneys have reported seeing RFEs questioning information posted on social media and other websites.  LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter and other social media outlets are public and available to USCIS adjudicators.  USCIS is reportedly searching the internet for information on companies and employees before approving cases. 

Things to keep in mind regarding online postings:

·         Employees assigned to third party worksites who list the end-client as their employer.  This can cause the USCIS to raise questions regarding whom the actual employer is and who maintains the right to control the employee’s work.  Be sure to list your H-1B employer as your employer on your social media page.

·         Any information on a company’s website which contradicts the H-1B petition, including the address of the company headquarters, vendors or other clients the company works with, etc. can cause the USCIS to issue an RFE asking for additional information about the Petitioner.

·         Negative comments posted on social media or other customer feedback websites may cause the USCIS to investigate the company more fully before approving the case.

MU suggests that H-1B employees are accurately listing their employment on social media and that your company website is accurate and up-to-date.
