I am currently working in company A as full time employee on H1B for past 4 years.I'm waiting for my I 140 approval.
I got a part time job in another company B. Company B planning to apply for Part Time H1B under concurrent employment basis.I'm not changing the employer and I'll continue to do my full time employment.
can i apply for concurrent part time h1b and do both the jobs at same time ?
Will it affect my I 140 or any green card processing?
Yes, multiple concurrent H-1Bs are possible ... if BOTH companies are aware of it and A sends a letter of support along with B's application.
The GC shouldn't be impacted ... as long as you stay with A.

Yes, "concurrent employment' for multiple employers simultaneously is allowed under H-1B rules. Each additional part-time employer needs to have his own H-1B petition approved by USCIS. Will not affect the merits adjudication of either your employer's I-140 petition nor your own I-485 AOS application.
