Can we begin work with LCA pending before 60 day grace period end?

Hi, I have a question about the LCA approval. Is the current shutdown affecting the LCA apporval. We cannot file for H1B transfer until LCA is certified. Can we begin work with LCA pending before the 60 day grace period ?

LCA can be filed in shutdown too.

Yes, it can be filed. But I think currently it is taking time to get it certified. What are the options if it is not certified before the 60 day grace ? Is there a way to follow up or track the LCA status.?

Your employer can follow up if required.

Thank you for the inputs. Your advice really provides a much needed help and encouragement.
