H1b approved but starting job after 60 days in H1B : General Posted July 9 · Edited July 9 by mgp09 · Report reply Hi All, I lost my job about 55 days ago. My new H1b was filed some time ago and approved. But due to company policy (they need physical copy of i797A in hand) I will not be able to start work before 60 days after my last job. In case I am not on payroll within 60 days will this be considered as out of status even with approved H1b? Will it have any consequences on H1b extension/stamping?
