H1b cap exempt LCA and processing time

asked Feb 1, 2015 in H1B: Processing Times by dan (24,504 points)
Hi, I've worked in US under H1b from 2006/10 to 2011/02 (I have 1+ year left from my previous H1b period. I also have an approved I-140.) Since then I went to work in Canada, and now I'm looking to return to US to work for a new employer. I believe I qualify for H1b cap exempt for the remaining 1 year I had from my prior H1b, which should give me time to apply for a new H1b subject to cap the following year. I wonder if anyone could tell me what does my new employer need to do to get me the new H1b approval under cap exempt (do they need to file LCA, etc. as in regular H1b cases)? And long would the whole process generally take (i.e., how quickly can I go to US and start work, assume premium processing)? Thank you very much for your help!

If you have an approved I-140, you can apply for H1B in the multiples of 3 years, you dont have to go for a cap-subject H1B petition.
