Exempt H-1B worker
Exempt H-1B worker is an H-1B worker who receives at least $60,000 per year in wages
or has attained a master's or higher degree in a specialty related to the
intended employment. If an H-1B dependent employer or a willful violator employs
only exempt H-1B workers on an LCA where the employer has attested to hiring
only exempt workers, the employer is relieved from the additional obligations
(nondisplacement, recruitment, and hiring) with which the employer would
otherwise be required to comply. This is not the same as exempt under the FLSA.
