Displacement

Displacement is the replacement of a U.S. worker by an H-1B worker in an essentially equivalent job and occurs within the period beginning 90 days before and ending 90 days after the filing date of an H-1B visa petition. When the U.S. worker and the H-1B worker are employed by the same employer, it is often called direct displacement. See also, secondary displacement.
