When does the 60 days grace period start for an H1B employee who is laid off ? "Last Day at Work" or "Employment Termination Date" ?

Recommended Posts

Say an employee is laid of on Jan 1st 2019 without any prior notice as in they are relieved of all duties and responsibilities and don't need to come to work starting Jan 1st 2019 aka "Last day of active employment" or "Last Day at Work"  but the "Employment Termination Date" is March 1st 2019 and the employee's payroll will run till then.

Does the 60 days grace period for the visa holder start from Jan 1st 2019 or March 1st 2019 ?

It's technically 60 days from when your employer revoke's your H1B petition. Say in your case, Its likely your employer will revoke your H1 on March 1st 2019. So it will be 60 days from March 1st. Anyways consult Immigration attorney for help!
