Can an employee reimburse me for immigration costs?

Yes, except in certain circumstances.  The $1,500 (or $750 for smaller companies) data collection fee for H-1B non-immigrants is not reimbursable.  Also, reimbursement is not allowed when it would offset the prevailing wage certified in a Labor Condition Application included in the visa petition.  Lastly, an employer cannot receive reimbursement from an employee for the advertising and legal fees associated with the preparation and filing of an alien employment certification.
