You can't file anything. The employer would have to file it. Are you saying that the employer doesn't know how? The employer should consult with an immigration lawyer.

Hey Guys, Just wanted to share similar case of a person I know. She got Masters degree in computer science. Got internship in a big US bank and then offered a full time position with level 4 pay (this was an transfer / extension from already approved petition from another employer). Applied for 15-1121.00 - Computer Systems Analysts she got RFE in December, her employer responded with

  1. Three expert letters (one from a professor, one from VP from another similar/same industry, one from technical consultant). 
  2. Attached her detailed job description with % of time spent on each task.   
  3. Copied references to 3 job postings from other similar industries stating that position needs minimum bachelors degree.  

Her i-129 was denied stating her proffered position is not specialty occupation and given job duties are too vague and not detailed even after providing all the evidence and supporting documents. Her I-94 has expired so she is leaving this week. Her employer is filing for another position in the company while she is in her home country. Their project is on hold because she is their lead and can't work, This is absolute madness. 

Thanks

Hello Guys,

I got the same RFE. Can anyone share any sample documents?

How to get this requirement fulfilled?

  • Letters from an industry-related professional association indicating that they have made a bachelor's degree or higher in a specific specialty a requirement for entry into the field.

Thanks,

Nish

Hi,

One week back I received an RFE, asking for "Speciality Occupation" documents. Can anyone help me on this? 

Please send me sample docs

Kindly help me on this!!!

The employer or his lawyer have to handle that. They should know how to answer the RFE. You have to stay out of this. Any involvement by the beneficiary is likely to result in a denial.

If the employer doesn't have a lawyer, they should consult with one.
