Norm Matloff's H-1B and Offshoring Web Page
Some of Professor Norm Matloff's Writings on H-1B and Offshoring
(Note: Each of these articles was written at the invitation of the
- My 2013 EPI paper.
- Here is my 2013
- My 2012 academic paper on the subject is available
- I published an extensive academic paper
on the H-1B/L-1 issue in 2003 in the University of Michigan
Journal of Law Reform. At 100 pages and 300+ footnotes, this is the
most extensive study ever published on this topic. Click here to download the paper.
- Another article was the relation of H-1B to age
discrimination in the computer industry, published in 2006 in the
California Labor and Employment Law Review, a publication of the
California State Bar Association. Many people, even critics of the H-1B
program, are unaware of the fact that one of the primary reasons
employers like H-1B is that it broadens the young segment of the labor
pool, enabling employers to avoid hiring the 45-year-old, or for that
matter, 35-year-old, programmers and engineers.
