In a precedent decision, the AAO held in Matter of Simeio Solutions, LLC, 26 I&N Dec. 542 (AAO 2015) that a change in employee worksite that necessitates a new LCA also requires an amended H-1B Petition. Initial estimates suggest this will cost employers more than $400 million annually. Be sure to call SPS Immigration before making any changes to an H-1B employee worksite.
