H1B: Unpaid Period

Recommended Posts


I got laid off last month on February 11th so my grace period is till April 10th(60 days ). But I got a job already and the new employer has already sent the transfer case to USCIS on March 19th and we did receive a case number (Premium processing). My start date originally was on 03/30/2020 but due to the COVID-19 state emergency, the client has postponed my joining date to May 1st (05/01/2020).


So how many days can I be unpaid (without running the payroll) considering my transferring case gets approved or RFE.

Note: My grace period ends on April 11th and my home country has locked-down all the international travel
