Thread: H1B Salary

  1. #1
    Hello,

    Iam currently on OPT till April 16th 2010. I have been offered a Job in a non profit organization for the position of an accountant. The current rate I will be getting paid is 16$ per hour and the company has agreed to apply for my H1B in March 2010.

    The company that I will be working for are totally unaware of the Immigration laws as I will be their first H1B hire. Now according to the department of labour, the minimum hourly salary rate is 19.93$ an hour for an accountant.

    If the company appiles for my H1B before april 15th 2010, by when will they have to increase my horuly rate to 19.93 $ ?

    Should the increase happen on October 1st 2010 when the H1B kicks in,

    or should the increase happen when the H1B gets approved ( between april - october )

    or should the company increase my salary to 19.93$ an hour even before we apply for H1B ?

    or should the increase in the pay happen on the date of expiry of my OPT, i.e. April 16, 2010


    I also know that I am eligible for H1B cap gap (for the period between the expiry of OPT and the date the H1B kicks in).


    Hoping for your valuable replies as soon as possible.

    Thanks

    $19.93 or more when company apply for H1B.

    Because the H-1B will not be effective until October 1, 2010, the higher salary does not have to go into affect until October 1, 2010.
