Comment Re:Require pay and benefits parity (Score 1) 612

My immigration lawyer wife informs me that recent layoffs are not a factor when applying for *new* H1-B applications. HOWEVER, if and when a company decides to petition for permanent residency (aka, green card) for a H1-B holder, the company must prepare a declaration explaining why any recently laid-off employees would be unsuitable for the permanent position that will be filled by the person adjusting from H1-B to permanent resident status. Therefore, there is at least some protection for laid-off employees. I do agree that this protection should be strengthened to eliminate the possibility of abusive employment practices.
