Is it okay to switch cap-exempt employers while cap-subject H1B petition is pending.

Recommended Posts

My cap-subject registration with the prospective employer(for-profit) got picked in the lottery and now the employer is preparing to file a petition. Once approved I'll start from Oct 01. I will definitely join this employer on Oct 01.

Currently, I'm on a cap-exempt H1B visa with a non-profit org-A and looking to switch employers asap. I have an offer from another non-profit org-B for which they need to file a cap-exempt H1B petition and I would like to work until Sep end with this non-profit org-B.

My case: I want to leave my current non-profit org-A asap and join non-profit org-B for time being, finally on Oct 01 I wanted to leave non-profit org-B and join a for-profit employer(prospective employer).

My questions are

- while the for-profit org is in the process of filing a petition/filed petition, would a non-profit org-B filing a cap-exempt H1B petition around the same timeframe complicates the situation or it's fine?  
- also, in this situation eventually if the for-profit org cap-subject H1b petition gets approved and I'm waiting to join them on Oct 01, can I still work for non-profit org-B on a cap-exempt H1B eventually approved petition?

Yes for sure, by the time they resolve and you get approval it will be October.


thank you for your reply, but didn't get you fully. what would be a problem? How would changing nonprofit employers, would impact my H-1B CAP Petition? I think it should not. They are unrelated.
