So i enter in usa again on h1b now. so my employeer need to any payroll changes related to h1b?
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.
You can remain in the USA in H-1B status for the duration of the validity of the LCA attached to our H-1B. The visa and I-94 will "mirror" that LCA's expiration date.
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.
