I went to the US on H1B visa and now my employer has told me that they need to “bench” me because there is no work for me, and would pay me my living costs only, and not my full salary. Is this is how it happens or should I get my full salary?

Please briefly explain why you feel this question should be reported .

    There is no such thing as bench time without pay or partial pay. The employer has to pay you whether you have a “project” or not. The employer is required to pay you your salary as per the Labor Condition Application even if they have no work for you. You can report any violations to the Department of Labor.
