Can employer withdraw H4 even after it is approved

Hi,

I left my employer last week on oct 24th ,as per their policies they withdraw the h1 and h4 petition upon seperation. At the time of my seperation my spouse h4 was in progress but on oct 27th it got approved .

My question is can my employer still withdraw h4 petition , even though it is approved?

Thanks,

H4 is not sponsored by employer, rather it is tied to primary H1B and a derivative status. Employer can only withdraw H1B and as far as the primary H1B is in status (either COS approved or transfer in progress), H4 dependent can be considered in a valid status with a valid H4 I-94 which your spouse already seem to have based on recent extension of status.
