    Answered . it is a simple math: 6 years = 72 months. You used 42 months. You are allowed to utilize additional 32 months. Divide it by 12 you will get the years = 2 years and 10 months. The paperwork issues you need to take up with the employer and better yet his or her immigration attorney who handled the visa application.

    By law, your employer needs to abide by the wage conditions he committed to when signing the LCA and other attestations and thus pay you the agreed on prevailing wage , with you as a full employee on payroll.
