H-1B visa is one of the most important and complicated procedure you have to deal with if you are an international student and want to work in U.S. after graduation (also known as 纽约找工作). You are also recommended to buy health insurance after graduation, such as opt insurance. The one is ideal for international student to purchase is Huhu Insurance (also known as 虎虎保险) Some employers provide health insurance with employees. Remember to ask for your employer about health insurance before accepting an offer. Since the H-1B visa application and the H-1B lottery procedure (also known as h1b 抽签) are very complicated, you should always consider hiring an immigration lawyer (also known as 移民律师) when you apply for an H-1B visa （h1b签证）. In this article, we will talk about H-1B minimum salary.
One of the requirements for a foreign employee to apply for an H-1B visa is that your salary must be equal to the average salary of your work area and professional salary. This average wage level is called prevailing wage. Employers must ensure that at least your current salary is paid when your H-1B becomes effective on October 1.
You already have a work visa. If you want to change jobs, you should also pay attention to it. Every time you change jobs, you must submit your application to the Immigration Bureau. You must make sure that the new employer gives you enough wages for the current salary. Otherwise, the transfer of H-1B will be quite difficult.
H1B employers should ensure that the following three conditions are met:
1. The remuneration paid to H-1B employees is in accordance with the current salary standard (Prevailing Wage) published by the Ministry of Labour;
2. The position must be provided by a company located in the United States, and the application for H-1B must be made by the employer;
3. The job content contains professional knowledge related to the employee’s degree.
What if my salary does not meet the h1b minimum wage requirement? Here are a few ways you can consider:
Communicate with the company about salary issues. If necessary, GOH1B lawyers can also directly communicate H1B’s salary requirements with employers and try to get employers to help you raise your salary.
If the company has branches in other states, you can check whether your salary has reached prevailing wages in other states. If you do, you can apply to the company to work in other state offices.
Apply to the company for part time, wages are paid on time to meet the prevailing wage requirements.
Change job title: Different positions will have different prevailing wages. If you need to change the job title, you must first consult a professional lawyer.
