    Answered . Yes, assuming you have an EAD (or if you're in H1B status, you can file a change of employer petition, assuming you have recent paystubs at the time of filing). The priority date for EB3 is far off, but you should find a substantially comprable position (meaning the job duties are at least 50% the same), and should inform USCIS that you have ported your employment with an AC21 notice letter as soon as possible. This will preserve your GC sponsorship pursuant to AC21 regulations. Self-employment is also permissible to preserve your GC.
