I am on H1B, and I am currently being paid twice as much as the salary listed on the LCA. Does the employer need to get the LCA amended?


The LCA wage is a minimum; the employer could pay more. However, the employer should look to see if the LCA is really correct as to the wage level, and possibly even the job category. If it was set at a level that was not correct (maybe 1 or 2 for a job that is a level 3 or 4), that should be addressed. (13.Oct.2014)
