US Department of Labor submitted a H1B rule with title “Restructuring of H-1B/H-1B1/E-3 and PERM Wage Levels” recently to Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review. It is currently set to Interim Final Rule stage.
While we have little details on the rule, we recently published an article that looks at H1B Wage Levels Distributions from 2017 to 2020 and how it may impact 275,000 H1B Jobs, if the rumors come true and they set the minimum wage level to Level III or above for all H1B workers. This news of raising the wage level is based on Bloomberg Law News, who got this info as part of their previous press briefings with white house.
Now, in this article we have picked up top 15 H1B Sponsoring Companies from FY 2019 and pulled their H1B LCA filings and their wage distributions. We are grouping them by the type of the company like Outsourcing Firms vs Product based firms for looking at the pattern.
As FY 2020 Q4 data is not available yet, we do not have complete year data. So, for completeness sake, we have picked up FY 2019 data. This should give us good indication for FY 2020 as well.
Below are the top 15 Companies and their H1B FIlings Counts for FY 2019.
|Rank||H1B Sponsoring Company Name||Total H1B Filings (LCAs Count)|
|1||Cognizant Technology Solutions US Corp||28,415|
|3||Tata Consultancy Services Limited||11,864|
|5||Ernst & Young US LLP||8,686|
