My new employer (B) is in the process of filing for my H1B with an immediate start date (let's say May 20th, 2019). However, I have an agreement with my current employer (A) under which I will continue to be paid till Jun 15, 2019, but I can start working for employer B as soon as May 20th. In that scenario, I will be getting double pay for about 25 days.
Am I allowed to do this? Please note that Employer B is not filing for a "concurrent" H1B. My H1B with current employer A is approved till May 2020.
This is not a good plan. Talk to an attorney via Skype and/or B's immigration lawyer.
Get any advice they provide in writing.
