I would assume most people live within a commuting distance from their local office and are therefore good. Even if that's not the case, wouldn't you have an LCA for your home address which is where you are physically these days given covid and no travel?

I specifically added my residential address in addition to my client and base locations. Better safe than sorry! EY law can repost your LCA to add your home address, this does not need an amendment. I believe we had received an email from EY Law to add our home addresses around the time when the firm decided to mandate WFH.

I didn’t know that this was a requirement and I don’t believe the immigration team has made any communications about this unless I missed it. Where did this come from?

This is a standard H-1B requirement from 2018 or so. Initiate a LCA assessment and the immigration team will take care of the rest.

My mom lost my stepdad last year in a tragic accident. She stopped eating for a bit and lost weight. Lately I've gained weight (work/parenting stress in a pandemic, working attorney hours, not exercising like I did pre-COVID, not eating well). It's no mystery. I know why I gained weight. But my mom has started to try to give me advice on weight loss. Keeps referring to how I should do what she did. It's taking everything I have not to say, "What? Have my husband die?" Pray for me.
