Yes, myself and I know a few. Note that 15-1121 is across the board. Wage level varies per the designation

hearing RFEs are touching 80-90% and Denials are in the 20-30% range.

I know 4 people from Dallas, same account 3 H1B and 1 L1B got denials within last 2 weeks, so I think the denials are not 20-30% its 50%!

They all got RFEs, mostly specialty occupation, detailed roles and responsibilities etc. One even got same RFE twice. If you don't work in a leading edge technology pure programming and QA skills are not being considered specialty anymore.

Hi, My spouse works for CTS. His H1 extension got denied. His SOC code is: 15-1121. He works in BayArea. Since his I-94 has expired, he has to go back to India.. I have following questions:

1) Does Global Mobility Share the denial notice?
2) Anyone got their H1 extension approved recently when applied from India?

Hello guys, I'm new to this forum, Glad to see Cognizant colleagues here in this thread. Here's my situation.
I received RFE yesterday - H1B ext. Premium Processing, Nebraska. My SOC code: 1121 wage level 2. Not sure about the RFE details, and I guess it's related to Speciality occupation. I have EEEngg. background.
Let's say after CTS responded the RFE and worst case if this is denied, will Cognizant file another H1B in regular? I still have 3 months left in I-94 date.
My AOS is pending and I'm expecting my Advance Parole and EAD in 4 - 6 months time. Even if my I-94 expires, I will be in status to stay. But in order to continue working, I need EAD. So it can happen only if Cognizant initiates another H1B in regular.
Suggestions please...

Hi, yes, they do file if your I-94 is valid by the time of denial. if your I-94 expires by the time of denial, you have to travel to your home country and then re apply

thanks. Do they re-file H1B (denied cases) for everyone who has I-94 balance days left? or only for specific cases such as AOS pending?

I think it depends on account too. If you are very important to the account and if you have very good relationship with manager, they will definitely re apply

For Cognizant Nebraska Filers those who received RFEs.....
Can you please share your RFE specifics? Just want to check if the majority of RFEs are Speciality Occupation related or Employee-Employer relations.
Cog GIT never disclosed the RFE details, so bit curious.

Joining Cognizant is an ill advise. If I were you I would anyday prefer to join Direct Client. Insurance companies have good money and business , once you are in , you are fine. who ever advised to join Cognizant is an ill advise at the worst.

It depends , when you say your new employer ? Is that Small staffing company ( Desi company )who will likely place in the 3 rd party location or Direct employment ? It appears to me they are hell bent on serving denials to small staffing companies.

Hi,

My visa got denied last week and immigration team has given option to Refiling from India. So while filing from India do we need to raise the visa request as H1b Extension or new H1B? I have approved I-140. Please respond if you know. Thanks in advance.

please be clear, what is denied, Visa and extension. Visa and extension are different. if your Visa is denied then you need to wait for certain time to reapply

Hi, Did they mention any time frame for filing from India ? I mean do they file immediately (H1 extension from Non cap quota ) once you reach India - or - wait for 3/6 months for filing ?

to visa812:

Yes, they do, you need approval for VISA request from your practice head as well as Project allocation for US assignment. I see some cases happened that way. Some are immediately applied and got approval in 3-4 months, traveled back, some are waiting more than 6 months for filing.
Question is what will be in your case only GM team will explain ?
