Thread: F1 to H1b COS question

  1. #1

    F1 to H1b COS question

    I was employed by Employer A on STEM OPT at a client location. My STEM OPT expired on 12th April 2018. Employer B filed my H1b as a Change of Status (from F1 to H1b) on April 1st. My petition got picked for adjudication. Employer A did not file H1b because they are subcontracting firm.

    After providing receipt notice I-797C from USCIS, my university issued CAP GAP I-20 on the name of Employer A. However, Employer A is now saying that they can not hire me because of change in rules (bonafide employer relation) by USCIS.

    My question is can I stay in the US until I hear back about my H1b approval (thru Employer B)?

    If you are not working, you are accruing unemployment. Calculate the number of days you have been employed since you started on OPT and the number of days remaining until October 1. If it exceeds or will exceed 150, you will be out of status.
