I got promoted after my LC was approved for a certain position. My new position is under similar category/ same employer and similar job description (more then 60% of my new duties are the same as the position that I have approved labor for). Hope it doens't become an issue

Thanks this helps! I have highlighted this fact with my lawyer but am hoping they remember when preparing my applications. It has been over 10 days and still counting to receive forms to proof read and send back.

Your advice is highly appreciated.

I believe as long as ur pay is more than previalingwage u r fine....it shouldnt be a problem

More than that mentioned in your LC is okay, if it is less than you have a problem.

Yes, thats prevailing wages, no where does the law says that person needs to be paid the prevailing wages only, thats the floor on the wages.
If you were to look at the PERM application, in section F you have to fill in the prevailing wages (F-5 to be precise). In section G you need to fiill in the employee's wages, the sections in that are
Offered wage From, and Offered wage To.

If you were to think about it, thats a wage range.

If your employer tells you that he can only pay you the prevailing wages and nothing more...you are being had..

USCIS may issue RFE asking for explanation, because it raises suspicion, that a person may have taken a promotion or added job responsibilities since labor and not included that in the labor application.

Hope that helps.
Promotion is a problem ? Please refer this thread : http://immigrationvoice.org/forum/sh...ad.php?t=11002 (Promotion after filing AOS)

Some people say they got the promotion without any problem. More details anyone ?

My lawyer told me that we need to file LC with the higher of prevailing wage and salary (in effect, he told me that they cannot advertise for the job with a salary lower than my current pay). My salary was 20% above the prevailing wage returned by SWA. So all advertisements, job posting, LC forms were done/ filled with my salary and not the prevailing wage. I am not sure if there are any problems if you go with the prevailing wages instead of your salary if your salary is higher.
