The I-485 is not filed by an employer, it is filed by the foreign national. A foreign national lawfully present in the United States may file an adjustment of status application on the basis of an approved employment based immigrant petition provided they intend to enter into employment with the sponsoring employer upon receipt of the Permanent Resident Status. It may be helpful to discuss this matter with an immigration attorney to discuss pre filing and post filing scenarios.
