The USCIS has received 58,900 H-1B cap petitions for FY-2010 by November 28, 2009.  This represents an additional 2000 H-1B petitions filed as compared with just a week earlier.  There are not expected to be many more, if any, available H-1Bs by the time January 2010 rolls around. 

As of April 1, 2010, employers can start filing for the 2011 fiscal year which begins October 1, 2010.  There are also a variety of cap-exempt H-1B petitions that are not subject to the numerical limitation of 65,000 annually.
