H1b with a Non-Profit Organization

Recommended Posts

H1s for SOME non-profit organizations do not fall under the quota.

This applies only for H1s for universities, non-profit research organizations affiliated with universities, and government research organizations.

H1s for all other organizations, profit or non-profit, fall under the quota.

If I read this correctly, the non-proft needs to be afflicated with a university.

 

"Petitions for new H-1B employment are exempt from the annual cap if the beneficiaries will work at institutions of higher education or related or affiliated nonprofit entities, nonprofit research organizations or governmental research organizations. Petitions filed on behalf of beneficiaries who will work only in Guam or the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands are exempt from the cap until Dec. 31, 2014. Employers may continue to file petitions for these cap-exempt H-1B categories seeking work dates starting in fiscal year (FY) 2013 and FY 2014."

yes for certain charitable organizations, red cross, charity based hospitals and certain university jobs (including teaching roles) are exempt. You need not worry about it if your hired by them their legal team should take care of the h1b part. Hope that is what you are looking for

Hmm, not quite. Red Cross and other charitable organizations would not be cap-exempt.

ONLY universities, non-profit research organizations affiliated with universities (university hospitals would fall under that), and government research organizations are exempt.
