I am currently on an F1 Visa and have been approved for H1B visa starting Oct 2018 for my current job/location (Andover, MA). I have now gotten a new job offer, within the same company, but at a different location (Framingham, MA)
I would like to know if my company attorney needs to apply for a H1B amendment because the new job location is within the 50 miles radius (43 miles to be precise) of current job location. But the new job offer has a different job title.
Please advise. Thank you so much!!!

This is not legal advice until I am retained and have reviewed all facts about your situation.
It is ridiculous to ask unrelated attorney what your attorney should do or "needs to do." Doesn't s/he have legal knowledge?!
