DOL CASE HIGHLIGHTS ALL ASPECTS OF H-1B EMPLOYER LIABILITY

A recent Department of Labor decision, DeDios v. Medical Dynamic Systems, Inc., is a great primer on how employers and attorneys should treat H-1B employee salary obligations.  The case highlights several key issues: when does an H-1B employer’s salary obligation begin, when does it end, whether an employee may pay the H-1B filing and professional fees, and how to treat “benching”.

MU Law is using the DeDios case for a series on H-1B employer wage obligations.  We have also updated our “Top 10 things employers should keep in mind in order to stay compliant with the H‐1B visa process”.  If you would like a copy of the Top 10, please let us know.

The series will run over the next few blog posts.
