Generally, USCIS considers a change in work location where a new LCA has to be obtained to also require an Amended H1B petition. There is a pattern of USCIS issuing Notices of Intent to Revoke H1B petitions when a site visit is done but the worker has moved to a new location and all the employer has filed is a new LCA.

Thanks for the information attorney_15. Good to know that. I was of the opinion that only a new LCA is required when there is only a change of work location and no changes with respect to client.

A few years back USCIS was happy with LCA update only. From recent years, they need H1b amendment too.
