H1B Extension - Error by company HR


Recommended Posts

Context of my Query here:

I was due H1B extension this year. So my Lawyers contacted my HR and my HR searched company database putting my first name in the last name field and obviously she couldn't find me. So she informed Lawyers that i left the company.

When i contacted HR , she realized her mistake and Lawyers initiated my LCA last week. On LCA they marked 'New Employment'. I asked lawyers why are they showing as new employment , they replied that they checked new employment in order to take into account that USCIS will have received the erroneous notice ahead of our H1B petition.


I didn't understood it correctly.

So my question is : Will there be any negative consequences ( since it was supposed to be straightforward extension , same company , full time job ) in the extension process?


Thanks much !
