lorebarba27 is on a distinguished road
Question EB2 category

One lawyer told me that according to new regulations only jobs on Job Zone Five can apply for EB2. If this is true only 15-1011.00 - Computer and Information Scientists, Research can apply for EB2 for ITJobs.

Anyone knows if this is true?

I am in Job Zone 4 as a Computer Software Engineer and want to apply under EB2. But if this new rule is true I do not want to apply under EB3 and prefer to go back to my country.

Please advise,

If your title falls under Job Zone 4, you can still apply for EB2. However, there is a possibility that your case will be audited.

Mine is 11-3021.00 job zone 4 applied in Jan 2009. Anxiously waiting. :-)

What is the reason behind you saying 'case may be audited' for the OP. Just curious to check your side of thoughts.

Per lawyer, almost all EB2 cases are being audited (due to the harsh economic climate). DOL believes that if a job falls under Job Zone 5, then it requires enough preparation to justify a EB2 filing. If it falls under Job Zone 4, it's not "normal" and DOL would usually require a Business necessity letter.
