The NRDAA establishes that, if the Secretary of Labor finds that a facility (for which an attestation is made) has failed to meet a condition attested to, or that there was a misrepresentation of material fact in the attestation, the Secretary may impose such administrative remedies (including civil monetary penalties in an amount not to exceed $1,000 per nurse per violation, with the total penalty not to exceed $10,000 per violation) as the Secretary of Labor deems appropriate. The Secretary of Labor shall also notify the Attorney General of such finding and provide a recommendation regarding the length of the debarment period. The Service will give considerable weight to the Secretary's determination. Upon receipt of such notice, the Service will make a final determination as to the length of the period of debarment. The Service shall not approve H-1C petitions filed by that facility for foreign nationals to be employed by the facility for a period of at least one year.
Yes, you may change employers on H-1C visa, provided you have not reached the limit of your maximum period of stay in the U.S. H-1C petitions filed by a subsequent facility will be counted against the numerical limitation for the state of the foreign national's intended employment if the subsequent employment is in a different state.
The H-1C nonimmigrant foreign national may not change employers until such time as the Service approves a new H-1C petition filed in the foreign national's behalf by the new employer.
