I am in United States on H1B Visa on a "Computer Programmer" role. If I change my role to something other than Computer programmer when my H1B goes into extension than do I need to go for LCA only or I have to go for Petition Amendment?

Also, will the role change affect my salary in any way?

There is no need to file an amendment when the candidate’s job title changes or gets a promotion, with no significant change in the employee’s job responsibilities.Reference: see this link

  • Thanks..So does it mean that the salary will also be changed

  • @RomilN I think the salary is determined primarily by your employer, not the government.
