I moved to Canada as a Permanent Resident while my H1B renewal was under processing. Its done but the company I consult for does not want me at the client side all the time. Is it legal to keep working for the US company while working from home in Canada and travel every other week or as and when required? I still get paid in USA (I was in Edison, NJ) and pay American taxes, well for now.
If I understand your question your situation sounds fine. The employr can send you anywhere in the U.S. where they have an LCA or overseas to work or not work. when you go to renew the H-1B or change employers you would need to explain any shortfall in the monies earned so if you dont' have that; no problem. I recommend you travel with a letter from the company that you are on assignment for them and returning to your employment so you won't have any border hassles.
