The 1 year extension rule is for small consulting or staffing firms who take the consultants and place them on client site most probably on W2 (hourly wage) n all. If you are full time employee with the company and working dire tly for a client, the the extension period is still 3 years.

What a shame 😔

This is too broad an interpretation of the statue by DHS and would be challenged in courts as only congress has authority to alter the program.

Also wait! Isn’t the head or acting head if DHS is serving illegally? This is the irony.
