Date of H-1B employee's move
On or before April 9, 2015
No amended H-1B is needed.
April 9 - August 19, 2015
Amended H-1B must be filed before Jan. 15, 2016.
After August 19, 2015
Must file an amended H-1B once LCA is certified.
H-1B employers should note that generally an H-1B employer has 30 days from the date of the move to file the amended H-1B. Accordingly, we advise that MU Law is informed of the move immediately, so that we can prepare the LCA and the amended H-1B filing.
The revised Final Guidance also confirms that if an employer's amended H-1B petition is denied, but the original petition remains valid, the H-1B employee may return to work at the place of employment covered by the original petition.
