Hi Team

 

It would be great if some one let me know how to take action against employer if they mess up H1 visa filing

 

since 1 year, I have been with employer A(very start up company with just 2 to 3 employees and , husband-X and wife-Y runs the company. wife takes care of vendors/projects and her husband takes care of immigration part/payroll) . My H1 was about to expire in April 25 th 2014. So since February i have been asking my employer to apply for H1 extension. Y got hospitalized for some reason and X asked me to get my extension done through anotehr employer B. I paid security deposit to B and when B was about to file H1 extension, Y came out of the hospital and X asked me not to go to employer B and X promised me he will do my H1 extension. So X contacted attroney and asked attorney to file my H1 extension. After that again Y was hospitalized. Since then if i ask anything about my H1 extension, all i hear the word 'Trust me'.All projects are cancelled my vendors due to her health condition and so i was surprised how they are going to file H1 extension when they dont have any project. So i started asking serious questions and they didnot replied to any of them. Finally 2 weeks before my H1 expiry, attorney filed for H1 extension and with in a week its with RFE status. 

 

I tried to keep pressure on them to expedite my H1 extension. They couldnot take it and they asked me to look for another project. I have been asking them RFE time limit, RFE documnet, whether they willing to send RFE reply etc but i didnot get reply to any of them. My H1 was expired on April 26th 2014 and its in RFE status. Thats y even any new employer dont want to take risk to apply for h1 transfer in this situation.Am loosing most of the new jobs due to this visa status.

 

am not getting any sort of reply from employer and left to India without any professional courtesy of letting me know my H1 status. Now Y is fine in India and she is not in any critical situation now. Even now am not getting any reply from my employer

 

Am going through all this mainly because of ineligible employer. 

 

 

cant i take any action against them. I even called to USCIS customer care to ask my RFE limit but they are also saying they cannot share any information unless employer/attorney must be there over the call along with me. Employer is very irresponsible and X said me being an employee i cannot do anything against them

 

Can someone tell me how to punish these irresponsible employers in USA who is spoiling employee careers. Am very much depressed that i couldnot do anything

 

Also can you please help me with below queries

1) In this situation, how will i get to know my RFE time limit. Is there any way to get this information from USCIS without involving attorney or irresponsible employer in this.

2) To get another project, anotehr consultancy h1 transfer - for all this i need some time. All this i should do before my RFE time limit else i will be out of status. Will i get converted to H4 automatically or will i go out of status

 

 

Please suggest. Thank You.

1.No there is no way, forget about that H1.

2. Find a good attorney to know exactly what's your immigration status is. Find another employer ASAP and looks like you haven't learned anything from your experience bcos you are still looking for consultancies for job.

 

BTW, how did you find this employer??
