    Hi experts,
    Can a full-time H1B work 40 hours in 4 days(i.e 10 hours per day and not work on Friday) ?? Does that violate any H1B/LCA norms and cause any potential issues with Green Card.
    My company is a regular USA company and not based on EVC model.

    Note: The fulltime H1B won't be benched or anything...just to suit his family constraints, he would work 40 hours M-Th and officially not be working on Friday.

    Thanks

    I think whatever is on LCA, if you comply with that,you should be ok.

    Well i just checked the petition, there is a question

    Is this a fulltime position and it is checked YES.

    Assuming the above is true would 10 hrs 4 days meet the reqs

    Yes you can. I suppose you could even work two 20 hour days.

    After two 20 hour workdays, you'd need it.
