) in fiscal year 2011. For Example, the first record on this report means that Carnival filed 17 Labor Condition Applications(LCA) for H1B Visa in fiscal year 2011. The average salary of those job offerss is $95,269. The number and average salary are not for all H1B Visa jobs filed by Carnival in fiscal year 2011. They are for Deep Sea, Coastal, and Great Lakes Water Transportation jobs only.
The visa sponsors(employers) are sorted by the number of Labor Condition Application(LCA) submitted. The number includes new, renew and transfer of LCA.
If two employers have filed same number of visa petitions in the same year and same category, they are further sorted by the average salary in descending order.
The salary is the average salary of all proffered salary on LCA or Form 9035. Sometimes the visa sponsors(employers) does not enter a specific salary, but a salary range. Our algorithm uses the middle point of the range to calculate the average salary.
*: The number of LCA
includes renewed, transferred and cap-exempt LCA. Department of Labor(DOL) typically certifies more than 3 times the number of foreign work requests than the number of H-1B visas issued by USCIS.
A new LCA is needed if the foreigner worker changes his or her work location(even within the same state and same company), because the prevailing wage of the position depends on geographic location. However, if the new location is within the same Metropolitan Statistical Area or normal commuting distance, no new LCA is needed.
