L1 to H1b

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I've applied H1b from Employer B and received H1b approval status on Oct21,2013 after RFE.But, I continued to work on L1 Employer A as Employer B requested me not to resign and asked me to find out a project. I got a project and resigned from my employer on Dec18,2013.

 

Requested Employer B to run a pay roll from Dec19,2013.

1. Is there any timeframe when COS approved for H1b to continue to work? 

2. Will I have any visa stamping issues.

3. Did I break any US law?

4. Did my H1b become out of status?

 

Please post your inputs.

Well..why would you have to request your employer..when he has sponsored H1 for you he should pay you even if you are on bench.Coming to laws , you were on illegal employment with your L1 employer from 21st to 19th Dec.There is a 60 day period to join the H1 employer if you are in US but you can not continue working on L1 if your COS is approved.
