How far employment based GC process can move before joining employer?


Recommended Posts

One small company wants me to join them, but this company is not very knowledgeable in immigration stuff.


I might be thr first foreign hire, they are good in $$$ term, but they dont have too many employees ~90-100.


I have asked them to start GC process before I can think about joining them, which I know is possible.


I want to know how far can I delay not joining them without hampering this new GC process (PERM->I140->PD becomes current)?


I know PERM can be done without me joining them, not sure how far can they go?

No sane company would do that, though. They would have to spend a lot of money without even knowing if you as employee are going to work out for them.

What you try would never make it through competent HR.

I was expecting this :) . Making it work will be my concern.


I was just asking, if it is legally feasible.

Best bet is to have them file PERM and join once PERM is approved. Since PERM is the one that takes a lot of time. Even this is going to be good 1 year process.


Then the job can't be all that urgent. Why would the company not just hire somebody else who can start immediately, instead of waiting a year?

This stuff looks quite fishy to me.

Or the OP would have to have some one-in-tenthousand expertise in his field. Then he should be able to find lots of companies that would hire him, pay him a lot of money, and file a GC in EB1-Extraordinary Ability...
