The USCIS adopted the AAO decision in the Matter of Z-A-, Inc., Adopted Decision 2016-02 (AAO Apr. 14, 2016) as agency policy. The decision requires the USCIS to consider all relevant evidence when determining whether an L1A beneficiary will be managing an essential function, as opposed to performing an essential function, of the petitioner.
