H1 filing after working on 1099 on OPT EAD

Recommended Posts


A cousin of mine,who is on OPT EAD, is working on 1099 basis with an Employer A for the past 6 months.He is planning to file a H1B this year with Employer B.He is not working for Employer B as of now but plans to work once his H1B is approved

We would like to know if his previous employment history,with Employer A, would be of any advantage during his H1B processing ?

From what I have heard so far the candidate needs to have a employer history with the Employer who is filing the H1b for the H1B to be approved.

It has no effect at all.

Don't listen to rumors. F1/OPT and H1 are two totally unrelated things.
