H1B RFE for valid status


Recommended Posts

I worked for a desi company called ********** LLC based in Shawnee KS. This company has shutdown the business without paying my salary for 3 and half  months. Usually my payslip and payperiod will have a gap of 30 days example August Month will be paid last week of September pay date.

My employer did not informed me whether he is firing or terminating or anything simply stopped paying. For Month of November 2014 and December 2014 according to the paydate I should get payments end of Dec 2014 and Jan 2015 but received nothing. For November 2014 paystub was generated and sent to me on jan 28th but  did not deposited the amount in bank. For December 2014 he encashed the cheques from client  but provided nothing.   By Jan mid I realised the situation and looked for different employer. My LCA was filed on Jan 28 and H1b Receipt date is Feb 20.


I have employer provided health insurance till end of February 2015.  I had worked for January 2015 at client place  and ready to give the timesheets if  cleared all my back wages but he did not cared to get the  timesheets.

 I got RFE on my h1b transfer with new employer on my status. Provided my paydate and payperiod having large gap of 2 months  how long will I be in out of status. I was with this company for 5 yrs. 


My first priority is for h1b transfer successful and getting the back wages later from employer.  I had gone through few posts there is wh4 form  but Kansas DOL expects a different  form of its own.  Do I need to complain to Federal DOL also ?   Please let me know

Can I make a plea to USCIS for  out of status ?   Last payment is received on  6th Jan so  it will be around 45 days  with no paycheck.  Will there be any success  in transfer

 A plea will not help. Since a complaint is filed that will be investigated. If found to be true you get your salary dues and transfer to new employer with I94.
