My wife’s H4EAD expired on Jan 22nd 2020. She was working till Jan 22.
On Jan 21st her change of status to H1 got approved. H1b started on Jan 21.
But since her employer had not received approval notice in hand by Jan 22, they terminated her.
She is now on H1b visa and waiting for her employer to rehire her. Rehiring process is taking much longer than she expected.
If rehiring process drags on, how long does she have before she needs to leave US?
I am assuming since she was on H1b from Jan 21, this should be considered as “H1b employment terminated” therefore she should have 60 days to find new job or change status.
If that is true and she has 60 days to either leave US or find new job or change status, then can she rejoin same company which terminated her because only reason for termination was that they did not have her work permit (i.e. H1b Approval notice) in hand.
