I am up for a position change soon at my current workplace. This is still under discussion. I have an approved I-140 for my current position. The newer position is a managerial position, whereas my current position is just a senior employee. I am quite sure this will warrant an amendment due to the job description. I have a few questions regarding this.
- When should the PERM/I-140 and H1B amendment be applied in this scenario? Should it be before or after the position change?
- Also, should the PERM and I-140 be done from scratch (i.e Recruitment steps, PWD, PERM and I-140)?
- In case the newer PERM and I-140 is denied for some reason, is my first I-140 still valid?
- How long will H1B amendments usually take for approval ( I am on a non-cap, non-profit H1B). Is Premium processing avaialble for non cap H1B amendments.
Thank you very much.
