USCIS Issues Final Guidance for Amending H-1B Petitions Governing Changes in Employee Worksite Locations

    View Author August 2015

    US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) recently issued a final guidance policy statement on H-1B worksite location changes that will significantly impact all employers who sponsor H-1B workers at multiple worksite locations. This clarification of longstanding USCIS policy comes in the wake of the USCIS Administrative Appeals Office’s (AAO) April 9, 2015 precedent decision, Matter of Simeio Solutions (Simeio), which held that an H-1B employer must file an amended or new H-1B petition when a new Labor Condition Application (LCA) is required due to a change in the H-1B worker’s place of employment.
