DHS/USCIS RIN: 1615-AB68 Publication ID: Fall 2016 
Title: Petitions Filed on Behalf of H-1B Temporary Workers Subject to the Annual Numerical Limitation  
Abstract:

The Department of Homeland Security is finalizing its interim regulation governing petitions filed on behalf of alien workers subject to the annual numerical limitations applicable to the H-1B nonimmigrant classification. This rule precludes a petitioner from filing duplicate petitions on behalf of the same alien temporary worker. This rule also makes accommodations for petitioners to create a more efficient filing process for H-1B petitions subject to the annual numerical limitation. Finally, this rule clarifies treatment of incorrect cap exemption claims and removes certain unnecessary regulatory language.
