AAO L-1A New Office Manager Victory

"While the beneficiary is required to apply his business expertise in carrying out his job duties and perform some operational or administrative tasks, the petitioner has established by a preponderance of the evidence that the majority of the day-to-day non-managerial tasks associated with the function he manages are performed by his staff of ten direct and indirect subordinates and by external service providers. ... As the statutory definition discusses managerial capacity as a function of the duties that the beneficiary "primarily" performs, the petitioner need only establish that the beneficiary devoted more than half of his time to managerial duties. The petitioner has met that burden." - Matter of X-, WAC 13 103 50466, Sept. 13, 2013.  [Hats off to Boston superstar Roy J. Watson, Jr.!]
