The data only indicates the number of applications filed by Patni Americas Inc.. It does not mean that Patni Americas Inc. actually got the visa and hired the workers.
Labor Condition Application(LCA) is different from Labor Certification(LC). LC is for employment based green card while LCA is for H1B visa.
Our LCA data not only includes those filed by Patni Americas Inc. for new h1b visa applications, but also those for H1B Visa tranfers and renews. Patni Americas Inc. should also file a new Labor Condition Application(LCA) for an H1B Visa petition if the foreign worker changes work location within Patni Americas Inc., because the prevailing wage will change. The Immigration and Nationality Act requires that the hiring of a foreign worker will not adversely affect the wages and working conditions of U.S. workers comparably employed.
