At the time of Filing:

2. THEN PUT THE LCAs IN THE FILE, ALONG WITH THE WAGE DATA (ie THE PREVAILING WAGE DETERMINATION). PLEASE MAKE A NOTE OF WHEN AND WHERE THE LCAs HAVE BEEN POSTED IN THE FILE. THIS FILE CAN BE ACCESSED BY THE PUBLIC. ALSO PLEASE FURNISH A COPY OF THE LCA TO THE H-1B BENEFICIARY.

During the H-1Bs Employment

1. IF THE JOB LOCATION OF THE BENEFICIARY CHANGES, PLEASE FILE ANOTHER LCA AND DO THE SAME WITH THE CERTIFIED COPY AS ABOVE. YOU DO NOT NEED TO FORWARD THIS LCA TO THE USCIS.

2. IF YOU BENCH AN EMPLOYEE, YOU NEED TO PAY THAT EMPLOYEE UNLESS THE EMPLOYEE REQUESTS FOR A TIME OFF. IF AN EMPLOYEE REQUESTS FOR TIME OFF, PLEASE HAVE THE EMPLOYEE WRITE AN E MAIL OR A LETTER AND HAVE IT ON FILE

1. PLEASE LET THE EMPLOYEE KNOW IN WRITING THAT YOU ARE TERMINATING HIM

2. PLEASE WRITE TO BOTH THE CIS AND DOL ABOUT THE TERMINATION

3. IF THE EMPLOYEE GOES BACK HOME, NEVER TO COME AGAIN, YOU WILL NEED TO PAY FOR THE EMPLOYEE’S TRAVEL BACK. (NOT THE FAMILY, JUST THE EMPLOYEE’S TRAVEL BACK).
