The H-1B is a non-immigrant visa in the United States under the Immigration and Nationality Act, section 101(a)(15)(H). It allows U.S. employers to temporarily employ foreign workers in specialty occupations.
U.S. businesses use the H-1B visa program to employ foreign workers in specialty occupations that require the theoretical or practical application of a body of highly specialized knowledge, including but not limited to scientists, engineers, or computer programmers.
According to Office of Foreign Labour Certification 2015 Report, Deloitte Consulting LLP was the top employer for H-1B positions certified in FY 2015.
California was the top work state for 3 out of the top 10 H-1B employers. In FY 2015, Texas, New York, New Jersey, and Illinois rounded out the top states for the top 10 H-1B employers. Most of the top 10 H-1B employers’ top occupations were in the computer related fields such as computer systems analysts and computer programmers. Occupations in Marketing, Accounting, and General Management covered the rest.
