H1B amendment denied, what are my options


Recommended Posts

Hello, I have a few questions regarding my H1B amendment denial. I have an approved I797 and I94 until May 2021 for working at client C1 through Vendor V1. In 2018 I moved to a different location to work at client C2 through vendor V2 and applied for amendment for which I got an RFE in June2019. The reason stated" Right to Control and Services in a Speciality Occupation at a third party Off-site" . The RFE response was sent addressing work availability and employe-employer relationship. The amendment was denied. My questions are:

1. Is my status valid. If so is it until May2021 or do I have grace period.

2. What are my options if I wish to continue at client location C2. Should I change my employer and file a new petition?

3. Can I file a new petition with same employe and vendor V2 at client C2?what are the chances of approval. 

Thank you.
