Safe Harbor Period for H-1B Petitions Following Job Site Changes Ends January 15
By Diane M. Butler
Employers who have moved H-1B workers from one location to another may need to file new H-1B petitions, rather than rely on a prior approval. For moves that already occurred, the employer must file within the “safe harbor period,” before Friday, January 15. To adequately prepare, the employer needs to plan to file a new labor condition application for the H-1B by January 6.
