LCA and H1B Amendment


I have moved from Client 1 to Client 2 in New York City locations itself (at a distance of less than a mile).

  1. Please advice if a new LCA is required.

  2. Will the employer have to file H1 B Amendment too?

  1. If they are in same MSA (metropolitan statistical area), then no LCA is required

  2. If no LCA is required, then no H-1 amendment is required.

Your employer/attorney should be able to make the determination in this regard.

Thank you. Does the original LCA have an expiry date?

Yes, it carries an expiration date. However it’s 797 associated with this LCA, whose expiration date matters.
