Some H-1B Spouses may be able Work in the US

May 8, 2014:  A new proposed rule for H-1B workers may allow some spouses to apply for permission to work.  This rule is scheduled to go into effect in 60 days.  If it is adopted it would allow some spouses of H-1B workers, who have applications for employment-based immigrant visas pending, to apply for permission to work while waiting for a decision on the immigration application.  Use the link below for more information on this proposed rule.
