If no then is there any thing to take care like new LCA etc.

Kindly guide.

Thanks,

No need for amendment if there are no material change. If it is same/similar role and same location (MSA) then even if the client change, there is no need to amend H1B.

When You Do NOT Need to File an Amended Petition

  • A move within an MSA : If your H-1B employee is moving to a new job location within the same MSA or area of intended employment a new LCA is not required. Therefore, you do not need to file an amended H-1B petition. However, you must still post the original LCA in the new work location within the same MSA or area of intended employment. For example, an H-1B employee moving to a new job location within the New York City MSA (NYC) would not trigger the need for a new LCA, but you would still need to post the previously obtained LCA at the new work location. This is required regardless of whether an entire office moved from one location to another within NYC or if just one H-1B employee moves from one client site to another within NYC.
