***Urgent help needed***: Visa status and leave


Recommended Posts

Is there a threat of losing H1B status if one takes elongated time off from work (3-4 months) on the the American Disability Act? This is after the H1B visa holder has already exhausted their FMLA benefits. HR has said that they will forward the application to the insurance company but can the work place fire a foreign national because they are on disability leave? Thank you.

Thanks for the reply. Can they terminate the employment even if I am on the state disability? Is there any way that they can force me to join despite my ill health and if the state disability is approved? 

Consult an attorney on this situation, because as per the new rules, now USCIS wants to know if you are on any Govt. assistance (while filing for h1b).
