Thread: Question on if you change jobs within the company you have H1B for

  1. #1
    If you got a H1B for a company and you change jobs within the same company and is now working for a totally different dept do you need to report that? Or will your status change?

    If your position is not 'substantially different', I think its OK.

    If say you are on H1B as accountant then you change to enginner or HR and so on, I think thats a violation because H1B is based on fact that theres no American to fill in a SPECIFIC POSITION.

    If you change to another position, legally you would need to get approved by USCIS coz some jobs are not 'shortage skilled' per DOL.

    Please tell us more about your situation.
