Work part time using EAD within first 6 months of getting EAD


Recommended Posts

I got my EAD 2 months ago and am still working for my employer with whom i have my H1. Right now, i have an opportunity to work part time for a short period of time (3 weeks) for another consulting company. This is in addition to my current full time job with my present employer. Is this legal? Can i work extra for another consulting company using my EAD while maintaining my H1B status with my present employer? Please advice. Thanks for your time.

Using the EAD will invalidate the H1-B. You have to chose wisely and can only use one at a time. It does not seem worth it. That said, you can have more than one H1-B employer at the same time but the "other" employer would have to file a petition for you and you are already counted against the cap. That is also not likely (or worth the effort for the employer for a short term job).
