I am in a situation where i will be transferred to a new location 30 miles away in a different county with the same job description .
Besides that I am in the process of my PERM being submitted based on my last work place .
How would the transfer affect the H1b and PERM ?
Will I need an ammendment for the H1b and how soon can i start working ?
DO i have to reapply again for the PERM based on the new location >?
1. Any material change in your employment, such as a change in work place, requires your employer to file a H-1B amendment before the change takes place.
2. A PERM is for a future position - it remains unaffected by your current change in employment.
