What are the employers obligations when the employer transfers and/or assigns a nonimmigrant worker to a worksite listed on an approved LCA within the area of intended employment?
The employer must ensure that there is no strike or lockout in the course of a labor dispute in the new place of employment in the same job classification before transferring the nonimmigrant worker to the new worksite that was previously identified on the approved LCA. Important note: H-1B-dependent employers and willful violators placing a non-exempt H-1B nonimmigrant worker(s) at a new place of employment also have an obligation to ensure that they are not displacing any U.S. worker(s) directly (in their own workforce) or secondarily (in the workforce of another employer at the place of employment). H-1B dependent employers and willful violators are defined in 20 CFR 655.736. Exempt H-1B nonimmigrants are defined in 20 CFR 655.737. Non-displacement obligations are described in 20 CFR 655.738.
