I am going to join company B full-time through H1B transfer (with petition receipt using AC21, approval pending). Can I stay employed with company A (current H1B employer) until I get the approval notice? I will be on sanctioned leave from company A during this period. Please note that company B has applied for 'change of employer' on I129 and not 'new concurrent employment'. I would like to maintain this overlap of employment only till I receive a decision on petition (premium processing case). I am exploring this option so that I can continue with my current employer in case of transfer denial.
