Approval for Outstanding Researcher
In outstanding researcher cases where a petitioner is not a university, it is particularly important to document that the organization meets the requirements for a qualifying employer. A recent client was being sponsored by a small organization with no patents assigned to it; also, one of its full-time research positions rotated among three people. We documented research accomplishment by concentrating on the impact of the work, and combined several different types of documentation to convincingly show the employer had a qualifying number of research employees. The petition was approved without RFE.
