In an article for Law360, Faegre Baker Daniels counsel Sarah Kilibarda shared her knowledge of the new visa Form I-129S that will require employers to provide even more detailed information about employee applicants than was previously required. This form would permit employers to bypass U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services and work directly with consular officers abroad when submitting candidate forms.
"If an L-1 individual — an L-1B in particular — will be working at a worksite other than your company worksite, it asks for additional information about that," Kilibarda said. "Including the supervisor's name, who's going to control the person's work and a little bit more detailed questions about why this person's knowledge is needed at this third-party site."
