This has returned from our GIT for additonal info (client and dates). If you keep Toronto - CTS office who will be your client ? I am not sure we do have any inhouse projects in our CTS offices, unless some POC & supporting projects.

But the question is where does your expenses goes to if you dont mention the account (client) details. Based on cost application might get reject as no account team ready to take that expenses when you wont work for them.

It will take atleast 1 week to get the document to CTS . Raise a request for safer side , so they can expedite the process.
They will place the doc in digital docs in my visa as soon as they get it. Approval will be given like year wise(PERM Pending) or if you have less days(few months for max out date, when your PERM not pending) then upto max out date.

What happened your PERM ? anyone from your company got any update reg their denials and the reasons for it ?



C*S Folks, Don't expect result in a week or 2 weeks time frame after appeal.

Here they are going in option 2 , where we need to wait for 2 - 3 months to know the status before they go for BALCA.

When the DOL received the appeal, the case status returned to being “In Process”. It wont take much time to update the status once the appeals recieved.

My Guess - May be DOL realized after seeing so many appeals from C*S , all are from same reason.
Instead of denying them , they started approving ? ( if this is the case all denails/appeals get approved in 1 - 2 months time frame )

Keep the hope !

This is some thing strange , as I know many of the M level guys got denied after audits who filed in Eb2 in june 2012.
Whats the difference for this guys ? as DOL approved few and others got denied..... and C*S followed same kind of processing for all(My assumption). Then what are the chances of getting approved in Appeal in this case ?

If 100% got denied then there was a fair chance of getting approval , now i dont understand the situation.

any thoughts ?

As per G*T , it will take 6 - 8 weeks from India.

"The average time taken for a Canada Work Permit approval from India is 6-8 weeks"

Canada WP process takes around 12- 14 weeks , where you need to surrender your passport.
Recently i raised the request assuming 10 - 12 weeks as per GIT email, later it was rejected by HR saying there is a potential risk of getting delays. Earlier it was happening within 6 months , now the demand is more.

Another thing came to know during discussion with HR , if some thing happens like extn got denied and you running out of max out date , then you need to convert to Tourist visa and cancel your WP request as well. Once you cancel it may take 2 weeks to get your passport. All the expenses for transfering to tourist visa to be bared by the resource only. While in toursit visa you can't work , you should be in Loss of Pay(LOP) as well. Another imp thing is your insurance is not covered during your stay as Tourist visa. Hope this information will help you , with june 2 max out date there is a 100% chance that your request will be rejected by MY visa team in a day or two. If you have chance to apply for 7th year exten first apply that, once you got the extn then re apply for Canada WP which is the best option.

This is somewhat near to CTS denials.... in this case it was approved by BALCA not by CO . Balca generally takes 2 years to adjudicate the petition.

" Matters of Microsoft Corporation, 2011-PER-00324 (February 29, 2012). AILA Doc. No.
12030120. Denial reversed. Case involved a single ad for multiple job opportunities.
BALCA held that the words "may require employer-reimbursed travel" were not misleading
in that it is clear that the ads were for multiple job opportunities with varying requirements.
BALCA concluded that the ad did not cause confusion that could have dissuaded a U.S.
applicant from applying for the job opportunity and did not evidence a job requirement that
exceeded those listed on the 9089."

Looks like all denials are for same reason(nothing seen other than below).
Irrrespective of max out or ppl who left to india still they will appeal for all denials as we do have only 30 days options else the decision is final . For the below case there is no possiblity of extension as max out date is earlier than PD date. He has to leave the US , still G*T is appealing his case. Hope this helps ?


Message from G*T

As per the email you received from MyVisa, your PERM case was recently denied. The reason for the PERM denial is a departure of prior DOL guidance as to job requirements. It is a legal/ technical issue regarding employer related information not specific to individual associates or applicants, and Global Mobility is/ continues to be in compliance with PERM criteria. In consultation with in-house legal counsel and prominent outside legal counsel, Cognizant will pursue an appeal. Government review/adjudication is unpredictable, and while we have a strong case for reversal of the PERM denial, GM cannot provide guarantee of positive outcome. The present timeline for appeals varies, and can take anywhere from a few months to more than 2 years.

According to our records, your max out date is 05/07/2013. If the PERM was not filed 365 days prior to your max out date, you will have to depart the US before this max out date. As the appeal will bring your case back to “In Process” status, once the PERM reaches 365 days pending, the H team would be able to file an H not subject to the cap (given that you have held H-1B status previously) via consular processing (again, provided that you depart the US prior to your max out date). Once approved, you would then be able to go for H-1B visa stamping and return to the US. If you have worked for Cognizant outside of the US for 365 days and wish to be assessed for L-1A eligibility, please open a ticket per the links below.

Is there any small company will do H1B Transfer and PERM for Free ? only big consulting companies will do ... but no one will hire us with limited time left on H1B including Fulltime jobs(direct clients, minimum required 2 years validity). Only small companies will do the perm filing without any waiting time compared to big consultings as they ask us to bare the entire cost. I am not here to encourage any illegal way to get GC, but re capturing the current fact how GC goes big vs small companies. Do we need to think to pay the amt and go for Small company to get the process going without hurdles on GC part ( apart from searching jobs on own , providing % of sal to employer for running pay stubs, baring all relocation & Lease breakage expenses etc) or stay in this Titanic(C*S) which we know that we really going to India after certain point of time by having everyday frustration ... spending long hrs in this tracker ?

What do you guys think ?
