Gaming the H-1B process

MonkMonk (1109741) writes "Lawrence Lebowitz, an attorney at Cohen & Grigsby, explains a method that can be used for hiring foreign workers under the U.S. government's Program Electronic Review Management process. PERM stipulates requirements for placing help wanted ads to fill job vacancies, with the intent of either hiring U.S. workers or showing that no qualified Americans are available.

According to Lebowitz "Our goal is clearly not to find a qualified and interested U.S. worker."

To help employers not find a qualified employee Lawrence and company explain how to disqualify employees using such techniques as:

- Listing many job requirements — If a resume does not list ALL requirements it can be dismissed
- Not listing the Salary — If the candidates salary request is higher than the hidden salary it can be dismissed

If any resumes make it this far they explain how the hiring manager can be used to dismiss them."
