H1b Employer Benefits


Recommended Posts


My 6 year H1b expires 03/13/17. My current I94 lists the expiration date as 03/13/17. I have applied for H4 & H4EAD based on my spouse's approved I-140. 

I understand that I will be on NO status until H4 visa is approved. I will also not work for my current H1B employer from 03/10/17. 

My employer is willing to hire me again when I obtain the H4 EAD. 

~While i'm waiting for the EAD, can my employer put me on unpaid leave OR leave of absence ?

~Can my employer continue to pay my benefits? while I pay my share of the benefits?

~If USCIS asks what my relation is to my employer during my wait time, can I say that i'm on a leave of absence from my company?

~Should we handle this as a Leave of absence or is it suggested to have my employment terminated and then re-hired?
