Does a change in the job title under same job classification e.g. LCA job code Computer System Analyst (151051) to Software Developer (151133) require an H1B amendment? Added responsibilities are not documented in current H1B LCA.


A job title change alone would not require an H1B amendment, but a material change in the job duties DOES require an amendment. The LCA does not list duties, only location, title/classification, wage level and the like. The specific job duties are specified in the H1B petition. In the example given, it appears that the title change is tied to a change in the actual job duties. If so, an amendment would likely be needed. (17.Mar.2014)
