Paid 30K less than LCA on L1A visa & paid cash against filing fees

Recommended Posts

Please advice my options, I was moved to US in Jan 2015 at 80K+ commisions as I am in sales.

At the time of filing for my extenstion in April 2017 my employer changed my salary by sending an email to 30K + commisions and I recently noticed that my petition to USCIS was filed at 60K + commisions. My visa got rejected in Dec 27th 2017 so I left and moved to H4 but I want to know if I can file complaint with federal agency for wrong wages.  My employer also made me pay him cash of 6K to against my visa.

I have the email confirming 30K my paystubs and also the LCA petition copy which was sent to USCIS at 60K. I dont mind if the process takes long but I want to go with the agency which has strict legal implications. Pls advice soon...Also I was on L1A so I can't go to WHD as it seems they only help H1b's

The L1 doesn't have an LCA. That's used for the H1.

My petition was filed at 60K but my payroll was processed at 30K..is that against the law. Also I had to pay for my L1A visa exstenstion. Is any of this is illegal under NJ state law

Again, the L1 does not have protections like the H1.

And immigration law is federal, so state law doesn't matter.

You only option is to quit the employer and find employment somewhere else in your home country.
