Please advise on the following:
Do employment dates on the LCA and H1B applications for a specific employee have to match exactly?
It seems to be impossible if aiming to send in H1B application on April 1st: Employment can’t begin earlier than October 1st, and when filing the LCA, beginning employment date must be no earlier than 6 month from the date of filing. So LCA needs to be filed on April 1st too…But then H1B application will need to be filed later than April 1st which seems to be too late for the application to fit in the cap…
Your help regarding timing of LCA and H1B would help tremendously!
