Bonnefil Quoted On Availability Of H-1B Visas

French Morning

Pierre G. Bonnefil, a Member of the Firm in the Labor and Employment practice in the New York office, was quoted in an article in the immigration section of the Web site "French Morning." The article concerned the H-1B visa quota and the fact that, due to the economic downturn, H-1B visas are still available at this late stage.

In the article, "Visa Looks for Takers," Bonnefil said: "With businesses closing during the recent economic downturn, business owners preferred to employ U.S. workers or offer internships instead of offering the H-1B visa option to foreign nationals."
