  1. Yes as long as there are two distinct positions and not just trying to get two shots at the lottery. For an example an employer may have an employee being paid from two separate entities or working for two different legal entities. It is a form of concurrent H-1B.

  2. Under extremely rare circumstances, perhaps.

    Your employer needs to retain an experienced immigration lawyer to review all the facts, advise them, and handle the case. Your employer can find one through http://www.ailalawyer.com.

    J Charles Ferrari Eng & Nishimura 213.622.2255 The statement above is general in nature and does not constitute legal advice, as not all the facts are known. You should retain an attorney to review all the facts specific to your case in order to receive advise specific to your case. The statement above does not create an attorney/client relationship. Answers on Avvo can only be general ones, as specific answers would require knowledge of all the facts. As such, they may or may not apply to the question.


  3. I agree with my colleague.
