H1b Transfer initiate and get pay stubs from both employers

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I have a H1b Transfer initiated from a new employer. Received a receipt number and I believe I can join the new employer with the receipt number which still has a risk of getting denied. The new employer is asking to join asap and I do not want to inform my current employer yet. I want to wait until the new h1 petition/h1 transfer is approved. I have unused 4-5 weeks of paid vacation remaining and I'm also planning to get premium processing done on the h1 transfer. Is it legal if I go on vacation at current employer (paid holidays so pay stubs will be generated until I quit) and accpet and start working for new employer with a h1b transfer receipt ? Any other options I have other than convincing the new employer to wait for a couple of weeks ?

Basically comes down to working for both employers after receiving h1b receipt and when h1 transfer is not yet approved.

I understand Premium processing will be available again from Feb 19 and I'm trying push my joining date to feb 2nd week so that I can buy some time. I need to know if I am good legally to have 2 pay stubs from different companies for the same time period for my case (old employer with approved H1 and new employer with H1b receipt)

Do I have any other options ?

I want to be safe and also I don't want to lose that other job. Also I'm more concerned about legal problems. I can quit my old employer any time. or even ask for 6 weeks vacation. My problem is that I'll be getting pay stubs which will be overlapping.

Any suggestions/ideas of how I can get this done

It may not  be legal. Once you start working for new employer you cannot work for the old employer. For you to be able to work for old employer, they should file a new petition and seek work authorization for you from USCIS.
