I am currently in touch with a potential nonprofit employer about a clinical job. The employer is hesitant to sponsor H1B because they mentioned that in order to apply for H1B, they have to show that they cant find US citizens/ people who dont need visa for this job. They get enough applicants to fill the positions and therefore do not want to sponsor H1B.
I just want to know (1) if it is true that employers have to show that they couldnt find US citizens/ residets for the job (2) if nonprofit organizations are exempt from this requirement.
I appreciate all your input. Thank you very much.
