I currently work for Company A who sponsors my PR petition. Our I-140 has been approved but I was NOT given the original 797 approval notice. My 485 hasn't been filed yet because the PD is NOT current. My extension of H1B is approved. Without having the I-140 approval notice in paper AND with my H1B extension approved with Company A, can Company B still apply H1B for me to work a second/additional job? I would like to have two jobs. Thank you.
The answer is simple but implications complicated. Company B can petition but will company A continue with their I-140 when you quit their job?
