It seems like the work location is set to the employees address in the LCA.

What are some things to be careful about?
Tips?

    1. Do you work at a third party work site?
    2. Do you live in the same city as your employer?

      No and no. I’ll be working from my home for the most part. Maybe occasionally a Starbucks. My employer doesn’t have an office in my city or even state for that matter.

      You will need to file an amendment to add your home address as an additional work location.

      Thanks Intel. I’ll check with the immigration team on the location amendment.

    If remote on H1B, whats the point of H1B?

      Because the candidate can have special skills the position calls for but doesn’t necessarily reside in the same location. Moving is not always an option, people do like to settle in one place with their family.
