I am working as a consultant where there r 2 layers between my employer and end client. I wanted to know if u had similar set up employer-vendor- end client or employer- vendor- vendor- end client.

There are no layer in my case. My consulting company has direct contract with Client. Why, is there a issue if there are layers?

Yes, I have heard that there are issues with layer set up as USCIS checks to see Employee- Employer Relation. In 2 Layer set up it becomes difficult to establish employee-employer relationship even after providing them letters and what not. You never know what USCIS would ask for at any given point. Hence I wanted to know if you had layers and what paper work you had to submit. But it is good that you didn't have any layers.

I think the most important is the End-Client letter which I was able to get. The letter clearly stated that my client has no control over my employement and it is upto my H1B holder to fire, performance review, or promote me.

Yes, I am also able to get end client letter stating that I am a consultant and not their employee. However end client can not write in the letter that my employer holds that hire/fire right as my employer doesn't have direct relationship with the end client. Hence I got letters from all the layers which eventually shows that my employer has all the rights for hire/fire and all that. Hope that makes sense.

is it advisable to write duration of contract in end client letter? generally it is six months which result into a year extension....or open-end contract duration is better...share your thought ...thanks!!!!
