Furlough on H1b with No Pay


Recommended Posts


My company had recently filed for bankruptcy and put all of  its employees in furlough for 1-2 months without any pay and looking for external options to continue its operations. I'm on H1b visa and say In my case as per my LCA the min wage is 80K and max wage is 120K (annual) and my salary is 100K. My company had not revoked any of our H1b's as they are negotiations being done to continue its operation in next 30 days.

As I'm not getting paid currently - Am I out of status right-away or do I have couple of months based on the LCA.

I'm currently looking for new opportunities but as its time sensitive would like to know the answer for the above question. 

Thank you
