Steps to Take by the Employer when Attorney is Registering H-1B Candidates on its Behalf

This post relates to employer’s obligations when it has retained an attorney to handle its H-1B registration. First, the employer must have access to its USCIS account. If employer has created an account last year, the same login credential should work. If not, employer should go through the reset password procedure.

If employer has never created an account, employer should follow the step-by-step instructions below on how to create an account as an “H-1B registrant”. Note that the goal here is to have the email and password so that the employer may successfully log in.

During the registration period from March 9, 2021 to March 25, 2021, the attorney will be registering each beneficiary through the attorney’s account portal. When draft is completed, attorney will provide employer with a unique passcode.

Employer will login to its account and enter the passcode. Upon entering the passcode, employer will be able to review and then accept or reject each draft. See detailed screenshots below.

Once employer accepts the draft registration, attorney will be notified through its account and then finally be able to submit the registration.
