I received a promotion at my job, from Analyst to Senior Analyst. My worksite has not changed, and my job duties are very similar. Am I required to file an H1B amendment?


Even if there is no change in the work location, an H1B amendment is required when there is a “material” change in job duties. A promotion where the job duties are nearly the same likely would not be considered material. However, this is very much a grey area. One should consult a qualified attorney for an individualized assessment in this type of situation. (31.Jul.2019)
