Hello! Thank you for using Just Answer. I'm happy to answer your immigration questions, and will do my best to do so based on my expertise. Please note that while you are working with me, I also will be working with several other customers, so you may experience delays. Your questions WILL be answered in the order they are received; therefore, please be patient as we work through your questions.Were your hours dropped? If you break it down to an hourly rate, does it meet the prevailing wage? Or is it still different?Did you earn a bonus that would have met the prevailing wage on the LCA?
Can we chat? I'm a fulltime employer for a company, though they have put me as a contractor in different company I'm being paid monthly a fixed salary.
I have not been paid any bonus. Actually the extension was applied only in April 2012 that's when LCA was applied and visa is expired last month. Not sure if this information is important to get an answer
On the new LCA, was the salary changed? And if it was, are you getting paid that salary? Or is the salary on the extension the same as the old salary, and you are not getting that salary?Who is paying your salary? And who is shorting you from what is on the LCA?
my employer is paying me and employer applied for LCA. On the new LCA salary amount increased and I'm getting the old salary.
The LCA is actually named the Labor CONDITOIN Application. That means one condition of the sponsorship is that the employer pays you the wage listed on the LCA. Even if you earn more or an employer promises more in any other contract or any other form, they are not required to pay you anything but the LCA. So to answer your question, you are supposed to be getting paid the amount listed on the current, valid LCA.
