Unannounced Workplace Site Inspections Expanded to Include L-1 Employers

 

The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) Fraud Detection and National Security division has announced it is expanding unannounced workplace site inspections to include employers of L-1 intra-company transfers. Previously reserved only for companies that employed H-1B workers, this expansion of the program to include the L-1 category means that any company that employs workers in either H-1B or L-1 status may now be subject to an unannounced workplace site visit.

Worksite visits are designed to detect fraud in the immigration system. Since their introduction in 2009, tens of thousands of unannounced site inspections have been completed at companies that employ H-1B workers.
