Yeah your law firm will ask that you get an amendment

Yes as per deloitte policy. You can only start traveling to onsite post H1B amendment submission

No one cares about legal immigrants

I read on the USCIS website that it’s not needed for less than 30 workdays. Guess the law firm will know...

Yes we all know what USCIS says. We’re all trying to tell you REPEATEDLY that your law firm will insist you have it.

U will need it.

yes, they even have new requirements for LCA posting even if you are local or within the same MSA. Sucks.

This is my little furball Sheero. He always used to chase me with his Little feat, wagging his little tail all around the house.

He is now resting with angles up in the heaven and I miss him a lot ❤️.

Venting: Just had a designer refuse to lowercase a word because they “felt strongly” that I was wrong about it.

I had to tell them that they were being inappropriate and just make the change. Finally they did, and then shot me a note saying they’d find time on our calendars to talk about this tomorrow. Talk about what??? Who gets the final say?
