My labour certification got approved now filing for i140, my prevailing wage is 120,000/year, my attorney is asking my company to give a letter in support of I140 filing stating that company will pay me $120,000 once i will get green card, my question, is this mandotary to get this kind of letter for filing i140? as my company is saying that i can' t give that letter but can give a letter which will say that 120,000 will also include per diem and benefits. Please advice.

Yes, the company must pay at least prevailing wage to hire someone permanently. Per diem and benefits don't count. However, the letter is generally needed for I-485, not I-140. The company may choose to have the I-140 filed with the prevailing wage, but then you will have to wait until you hit that wage to file I-485.

P.S. This is very high wage. Get a second opinion from an experienced lawyer if such wage is really necessary.
