Layoff on H1B


Recommended Posts

I am on H1B visa with current H1B valid till Oct-2020(I140 was approved with a priority date of May-2011).

I was let go from my current job on 15-Nov-2019, but my PTOs were pending and HR agreed to keep me on Payroll till my PTOs were exhausted, my final paycheck was generated on 10-Dec(including the severance pay) and 10-Dec is the date employer is putting on the H1B revocation letter they will send to USCIS.

Based on the 60-day grace period rule, what is my timeline to find a new employer in US? Is it 14-Jan(60 days from 15-Nov) or 8-Feb(60 days from 10-Dec)? Please advise
