You can now search willful violator employers and H-1B dependent employers using our new engine! 

Willful violator employers are the employers who have committed either a willful failure or a misrepresentation of a material fact when hiring foreign workers. 

An employer is considered H-1B dependent if it has:

  • 25 or fewer full-time employees and at least eight H-1B nonimmigrant workers; or
  • 26 - 50 full-time employees and at least 13 H-1B nonimmigrant workers; or
  • 51 or more full-time employees of whom 15 percent or more are H-1B nonimmigrant workers.

Both willful violator employers and H-1B dependent employers must comply with additional attestations when filing Labor Condition Applications(LCA) for H-1B Visa. So it is very important for you to know if an employer is on the lists. 

With our new engine, you can now search all LCA filed by either willful violators and/or H-1B dependent employers. Believe it or not, those employers filed 414,117 LCA since 2011! 

There is another list called Debarred/Disqualified Employers who have been debarred/disqualified from approval of petitions for nonimmigrant visa. It is a good habit if you bookmark and check the list every month!
