My Status H1B - I94 is valid until April 2018 with Company A .
Now B company applied for H1 Transfer in July 2017 got a receipt on 07-18-2018 . Started working for B company client YY from 07-24-2017 and also he started payroll for the same so far .
Company A stopped the Payroll by July 20th 2017 since I resinged.
I got an RFE now , have time to replay untill Dec 2017.
1. Can I go back to Company A and start working for client YY ( same Client that was for Company B )
2. Does A company need to apply for H1 Transfer since B company ran the payroll for over a period (3 months)?
3. Do I need to exit country and come back with A compay paper work to re validate the I-94 ? I don't know this please clarify ?
4. In case of denail of H1 Transfer to B by USCIS , Do I have any chance to file a H1B through C company ? what is the grace period to stay here? Do I need to exit immediately ?
Appreciate you detail answering my queries ?
People should never start working at new companies with nothing more than a receipt ... especially if the new company is a 'job shop' that sends workers to 'client project' worksites.
What did the RFE request?
1. Probably not ... but you should talk to Company A's immigration lawyer and NOT some NON-ATTORNEY in HR.
2. Most likely yes.
3. Possibly ... since you seem to have been working for B without permission.
4. Maybe ... after leaving and returning to the US with an unexpired visa 'foil' in your passport.
NOTE IF either company refuses to let you talk to the attorney ... consider paying one for a Skype consultation.
