I quit Job before my H1 got approved


Recommended Posts


I quit the job (i.e. September)  before  my H1 got approved. What are my options?

1. can I transfer my H1 to the new employer immediately?  

2. do I need to have the payroll run on the employer where I filled H1?

3. If I revoke the H1 will it go back to my previous status (i.e. stem OPT)?

4. is there any grace period for unemployment on H1?


Please help me.

No the employer haven't revoked.

on what basis the new employer can file the H1 next year.

The employer is required BY LAW to inform USCIS. If he doesn't do that he would have to pay you. No sane employer would pay somebody who doesn't even work there. So you can be sure that the employer informed USCIS.

A new employer can file an H1 petition in next year's quota.
