Given the current situation what are the options if one gets fired?


Recommended Posts

   There is an ongoing problem with my job and I worry what are my options if I get fired? I have an approved I-140 with a priority date of Aug 2009 but I am on a H1B visa. I believe I have two months grace period due to the new Obama rule but there is no more premium processing of H1B. So does this mean that I have two months to find a new job and then the company will apply for my H1B but it will only be certified a long time later since premium processing is no longer allowed?

You have a 60 day grace period. During this time, another employer would have to file a new H1. You can work while the H1 petition is pending, but there is a risk that it could get denied. So better find a decent employer, not a shady consulting company.
