USCIS Issues Policy Alert on Evidence for Employers’ Ability to Pay Proffered Wage

Mar 20, 2023 | Immigration Updates

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) issued a policy alert on March 15, 2023, on employers’ ability to pay the proffered wage to prospective beneficiaries of certain I-140 immigrant petitions. This is important in many employment-based green card petitions. USCIS said it is updating its guidance to discuss in more detail various types of evidence and explain how it reviews all evidence relevant to the employer’s financial strength and the significance of its business activities. Among other things, the new guidance explains that an employer must submit one of three forms of initial required evidence, but may also include other types of relevant evidence.
