The new U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) online H-1B Employer Data Hub shows that H-1B denial rates for both initial and renewal petitions have increased dramatically in the past two years, according to analysis by the National Foundation for American Policy (NFAP).
USCIS launched the H-1B Employer Data Hub on April 1 to allow public access to H-1B data. The hub is searchable by company name and address, fiscal year, or NAICS industry code. The hub displays year-by-year data since 2009 for each company, the number of initial and continuing H-1B petitions USCIS approved and denied in each fiscal year. The USCIS website also provides downloadable files showing complete data sets for fiscal years 2009 to 2019.
Initial H-1B Petitions
Continuing Employment H-1B Petitions
The full report by the National Foundation for American Policy is available here.
BAL Analysis: The data confirms the sharp increase in denials across all employers for both new and continuing employment of H-1B workers since President Trump’s “Buy American and Hire American” executive order in 2017. While the most recent available data only covers the first quarter of fiscal year 2019, employers should anticipate that these trends will continue.
