USCIS Publishes Final Guidance on When to File H-1B Amendment

USCIS published the final guidance on when to file H-1B Amendments for work location changes. A few key takeaways from the Memo: USCIS will not apply the Simeio decision retroactively meaning they will not pursue adverse action on location changes prior to the decision for which no amendment was filed. An amended petition must be filed by January 15, 2016 for work locations which occurred between April 10, 2015 and August 18, 2015. An amended petition must be filed prior to the beginning of employment at the new location if the work location change occurred on or after August 19, 2015.
