I am on H1 and have been furloughed on April 1.
My employer has not revoked my H1 and is valid is till Sept-2022 with valid stamping and I-94 till sept-2022
I have a prospective employer who will onboard me in End June which means I will be outside of my grace period.
However my future employer mentioned to me that since my H1 is not revoked, at the time of my H1 transfer I can simply cross the border and come back to activate my H1. So for me applying for COS is not required to legally stay.
Kindly advise what is the bes path for me.
Thank you in advance.
In my case since my H1 b is not revoked but I am not getting paid as it’s furlough so will 60 days grace period will be applicable for me, or If I find employer after 70 days I will simply transfer my H1.
If 60 days grace period is applicable then do you recommend me changing status to H4 from H1.
