We represent a Canadian citizen, who was Vice President of Sales in the
United States of an international water technology company. He was employed in intracompany transferee status. The company wanted him on a permanent basis and we prepared a Petition for Alien Worker for the company. After the petition was filed, the company terminated our client.
The client obtained employment with a
U. S. manufacturer of wire and cable products as Vice President – Retail, a position having substantially the same duties as his former employment. Because his original employer’s petition was pending for more than 180 days, Robert D. Kolken, Esq. utilized the portability provisions set forth in the American Competitiveness in the Twenty-First Century Act of 2000, and notified USCIS of the change of employment. The petition filed by the original employer has now been approved, notwithstanding the fact that he is no longer employed there, and the client and his family will be able to adjust their status to Lawful Permanent Residents as a result.
