Implications of H4-EAD to H-1B status


Recommended Posts

Hi,

I am currently on H4-EAD and working with employer X. Given the recent news on this, I would like to move to H-1B status through a new employer (employer Y) using a non-cap exempt petition (i.e., new H-1B filing). My questions are as follows - 

1.) If my H-1B gets approved what would happen to my H4-EAD? What will be the effective date for this, 01 October 2018?

2.) Do I need to stop working for employer X if my H-1B gets approved? 

Regards

1) When your H1B is approved, yourH4-EAD is gone.  You will be on H1 status from Oct 1st.

2) Yes, you cannot work for Emp X if your H1B is for Emp Y.  If your empX files your H1B, then you can continue working for Emp X from Oct 1st.
