If your previous employer has filed amendments, ask them for a proof of it, so you can use to prove your case. I suspect, that they didn’t so the issue now. If the H1B for the new employer gets denied, you can still continue to work with the current employer.
my employer kept saying that he will file my amendments but I am unable to ensure. Evenif he had filed it, the rule “amendment should be filed before starting work at new worksite” is broken right? what to do with that?
Hi Suresh, did you resolve this issue by reentering US from India? will it be an issue to do h1b transfer? did your new employer apply for a new H1b or just transfer H1b for you? I have the same situation, and I didn’t know that employer needs to file amendment for me once they asked me to change worksite to do other projects. Look forwarding to your replying.
Iam in a similar situation , my previous employer did not file amendment but applied extension on same client , meanwhile my transfer is in process , do you think will this be any problem for my transfer
One of my friends is in a similar situation and we are looking for help. Could you please let us know on this.
My friend’s original H1B based on a client in Arizona. In the middle there is a change in the client and new client is in Colorado. But the employer always runs payroll with Arizona state taxes as their main hub is in Arizona.
It’s time for extension now and while providing client letters .Client is from Colarado.
Attorneys mentioned that amendment should have been filed but that wasn’t done, so they don’t want file an extension.
I know your current employer won’t do it. That what happened in my case. I kept asking him from the day I landed here I US. I waited for 7 months. I also observed that he filed amendments for other candidates like me but he was not filing amendments for me.
I know that this is going to impact my future H1B filings. After six months of follow up , i stopped talking to my manager, I found new job with direct direct client. New attorney filed h1b transfer, it went into RFE because of different worksite locations location. New attorney requested for counselor processing, I visited Indians consulate, I was illegible for drop box because I did h1b transfer in less than years time.
I’m currently facing the same situation. I work in civil engineering firm which involves lot of traveling between the states. I was in PA for past 2 years and my H1-b got approved in 2017 and paying taxes in PA, currently working in VA from April 2019. My employer did not file any amendment. I got a new job and applied for H1-b transfer and received rfe for the change in work location. Do you have any idea about this situation?
