    MERGER & ACQUISITION
    **************************

    The general rule regarding mergers used to be that if the employer A
    merges ALL assets and ALL liabilities into Employer B, then employer B
    can automatically take over all H-1's and green card applications.
    Nothing gets interrupted as long as the jobs and the geographical locations
    remain undisturbed.


    The same situation obtains when B buys A with all its assets and
    liabilities.


    As of July 2001, we should be able to continue the green card/H-1
    process without interruption if the new employer takes on all rights and
    responsibilities with respect to employment and immigration of the
    employees and the jobs remain unchanged.

    Otherwise, all immigration has to be done all over again usually.

    NEW DIVISION
    ****************
    In case of creation of a new division within the same company, there is
    no problem, if the job locations, salaries and descriptions remain the
    same.

    NEW ENTITY
    *************
    If an entirely new corporation or entity is created, we might have to
    start H-1 and green cards all over again for those employees who are
    sent to the new entity.

    Please have an attorney look over your specific transaction. INS has
    been getting progressively more generous in their interpretation of the
    law.
