Hi, I have changed my client on H1B 2 years ago and my employer has not filed the amendment at that time. Recently when i asked for it, they said its mandatory for any going forward client changes and for old change its not required.
Do i need to file my amendment which was due since 2 years?
My H1B extension is due in few months, will the amendment not filed cause any issue during the extension process? Thanks you in advance
Your employer needs to hire an immigration attorney to deal with this very important issue which you cannot file anything for anyway. Only the employer can.

None of these questions and/or issues are your responsibility and/or concern, but your "employer"'s. Let him deal with it. In the meantime, hurry up and seek to file another "employer", a real one, this time and not one of the "job shop" kind..
