Because the employer was eager to have the employee start as soon as possible and because the employee was leery about starting work for his new employer before his H-1B was approved, we filed the case using premium processing. The case was approved within 11 days and the employee started work within a few days of the approval. Everything went smoothly with no requests for evidence issued.
The employee is permitted to work on H-1B status for the next three years and during that time the employer can determine whether to pursue PERM processing so the Applications Engineer may obtain permanent residency.
