Immigration Law Questions? Ask an Immigration Lawyer.
Hello! Thank you for using Just Answer. I am James, and I will be assisting you. Please give me a few minutes to review your question and prepare a response.
I am a little confused. Are you asking if you should have been getting paid while you were outside of the US?
I do think a phone call would be beneficial in this instance. But you are not obligated to have one. You can click on the "Call Me" button on your page, or I can send you the offer. NOTE: There is an additional fee for the Additional Service.
Can you explain to me what you mean by "negative"?
Was the LCA issued on an hourly or salary basis? And if you extrapolate the hourly rate to a salary rate for 1 year, does it meet the prevailing wage on the LCA?
15 days of what? Leave?
So let me see if I understand. You are normally given 15 days of paid leave. You took more days, but they were not paid. So now you are asking if you have to work overtime so that you can make up for the days that you were not working and not getting paid?
I am really trying to understand, but the terms being used are not common in this context so it is very difficult to understand what has transpired and what will transpire and what you are seeking.
For instance, this is the first you've mentioned about future time off. Up until now, it's seemed the focus was on the employer, your pay, PTO and how the past might affect your hours and the H1B transfer. And I still do not understand what you mean by negative numbers.
When you say -32 hours, negative hours of what? What is the baseline from which you are in the negative?
Are you sure you do not want to get on a phone call?
I am trying to figure out if you are asking an employment law question (i.e., whether the employer can keep you from getting PTO in 2017 because of the amount you took 2016), or if this is an immigration law question (i.e., whether your H1B can be affected by the salary you are currently drawing, which does not meet the LCA threshold).
