Reason for job termination in H1-B Visa interview

Recommended Posts

My job got terminated due to inappropriate payments at the food counter. I have a new employer filing for the H1B visa. Will this create a problem in the stamping interview? Will the VO ask about the reasons for termination, as I have gap in my job and will be leaving the country until the H1 is approved. I don’t want the VO to think I committed shoplifting. I made an approximate payments at the counter and there was no case or compliant registered. Company’s HR told I will not be eligible for re-hire. Will the VO do a background check with the previous employer to look for termination reasons? I am not going to lie to the VO during interview, I want to be straight upfront and honest. My documentation, work experience everything looks clean. I am looking for suggestions on how to handle this and present myself without jeopardizing my situation any further.

well, what exactly does 'inappropriate payments' mean? Did you give too much change to a friend or relative? Did you pocket some cash? Sounds like whatever happened was a display of dishonesty

Nobody has to give a reason for being let go. Companies have the right to hire and fire . Penny wise and pound foolish sometimes comes back to bite. Why would you resort to petty malfeasance to save a few bucks?

- How does your c0mpany HR knows about this "approximate payment"  if no criminal charges were filed and you were not arrested ? 

- The bottom line is to be truthful to the immigration officers.

Please consult an appropriate immigration and criminal lawyer for in depth review of your case.
