  1. You are right, Priority dates can become current any time. But that would not force the employee to file for I-485. I can choose not to. I know you might think that it does not make sense, but given that its my 5th year of H1B, my options are either to stick to the employer and go ahead with this filing or if i change employers, i would not have enough time left and would have to leave US and go back to my country. I would prefer to file for PERM now and then deal with I-485 situation as and when it arrives. Your inputs/thoughts on this would be appreciated.
  2. Thanks for your detailed response and my bad for not being able to respond earlier. The employer has the ability to pay the prevailing wages, but still paying me lower because every one in the organization is making the same or lower. At my level in the organization i am getting the maximum in my salary bracket. One reason why every one might be getting paid lower in my organization in because we are located 40 miles away from a major IT hub, where salaries are much higher, and DOL clubs our county and the other county as one area and has common salaries for both. Although where we are located, our salaries are actually at par or higher than average. In this attempt my employer did submit the private survey to DOL to demonstrate that, but DOL rejected it.
  3. Experts/Attorneys - any inputs would be highly appreciated
  4. Is the prevailing wage once established during PERM/I-140 process remains constant or does it change every year till I-485?

  6. Is it correct that employer has to pay Prevailing Wages (or more) only after I-485 approval and till then only needs to show ability to pay and can pay lower wages till I-485? Is this also true if employee's current job title is same as the job title for which GC is being applied? If above is correct then, yy current wage is 22% lower than PWD, should we go ahead with PERM filing as by the time I485 is approved (many years from now) i would be making more than the prevailing wages ? Or should i apply for another prevailing wage determination ? It takes 4 month appx these days for prevailing wage determination and i am in my 5th year of H1B and running out of time. Mine is being files in EB2 category.
