On April 9, 2015, the Administrative Appeals Office (AAO) issued definitive guidance on whether a move in work locations constitutes a “material change in the terms and conditions of employment” for H-1B filing purposes.

According to the AAO in its Matter of Simeio Solutions, LLC decision, H-1B Petitioners must file a new or amended H-1B petition along with a new certified LCA reflecting the change in work location.

This will be particularly cumbersome for the IT industry, where H-1B Beneficiaries routinely change work locations as per the industry's business model.

During this conference call, we will discuss the implications of this policy change on the IT industry and answer any questions you may have about going forward with your H-1B workforce.
