  • My L1A extension was denied because employees were on 1099

    My L1A extension was denied because my i paid the employees as contractors. Anything I can do about this? Can I appeal? should i file a new one? do i have to leave the country?

    How the hell does a case gets denied just based on this?

      From our experience, it is indeed often harder to obtain a renewal of the L1 than a new L1. The reason for this is that the first year is more a 'probation" time to check on the ability of the petitioning company to prove itself especially if it is a new company. Also if the person is on L1A, this person is expected to manage other professionals and thus paying them as contractors negates the idea. I will recommend looking into the case carefully and have a good lawyer reassess the case.
