Hi, I recently accepted an offer: same employer, same big function group, but different team. My employer already filed green card petition per my current(old) position (perm, I-140 approved). So for the future team change, the attorney said because that two job descriptions fall right on the boundary of "50% or more job difference", they could go either amendment (perm, I140 redo) or nothing at all.
If this is the case, which way going forward do you think would be better for me, and what are pro and cons related the following two cases respectively: 1) build a case showing < 50% job diff, so no amendment; 2) file amendment and redo perm/I140.
(note: Would option 1) bring any issues in the future during green card interview or future h1b extension?)
What does your company;'s counsel of record suggest you do next?
