Have any of you been rejected after getting picked in the H1B lottery (and after being on RFE status) ? I just got a notification saying my H1B petition has been denied.

Request for evidence: USCIS needs evidence from your firm establishing an employer-employee relationship. The firm has to send some documents to USCIS informing them of the employees current client, city, the work they are involved in etc.

Surprised to see egan messed up so many cases and still up and running...

It will affect next year if the issue is not addressed. They will bring up previous RFE and denial records. Hire a lawyer yourself to double check all materials off the book. It's just weird a big firm with a big law firm to have a failed case.

What is RFE?

Request for evidence... Yes I have heard of a few instances of the petition being denied after RFE... All those instances it was mostly the law firm which did not do due diligence... Unfortunate

Yep happened to me. Law firm said there is nothing they could do. It sucks

Does it affect your chances of getting picked in the lottery the next year ? My EAD extension hasn't been approved yet. They received my papers last week.

I got this for the Green Card. They just want to send doc's. Check with the lawyer. This is not an outright denial. It is merely a request for additional information.

I got an RFE a month ago. Documents were sent by the law firm to USCIS. I got a notification a few days ago that the H1B petition was denied. And that I'll get a mail with the reasons. This is an outright denial right ? Is there any way out of this? I've heard of something called an MTR

Appeals/MTR can take 1-2yrs. Your law firm may have received a notification with more information; I would follow up with them.

Were you on CPT? Funny why an EY employee would get denied

I am on OPT, and I have applied for an OPT extension as well.

That's weird

Should I be doing this right away, or closer to March next year ?

^ maybe earlier since they're not busy now. Try to get the submission package from current lawyer. Btw is it bcoz your degree major is not quite relevant to current role?

That couldn't be it. I don't see any reasons to get denied apart from negligence on behalf of the law firm.

I’m an immigrant with H1B. Been wanting to get out of my firm so badly but every time I apply outside, I start getting dragged into work at my current firm.I was going through some pretty rigorous interviews (I failed them) and have been in a slump since. Meanwhile my current firm keeps dumping work on me and I can’t find the time to apply outside. Anyone been through something similar? I’m losing hope.The politics is also so toxic, they started screwing me over since my last performance review.
