  • Can H1 petition be filed by two or more employers

    I am currently working with an employer A and they have collected all documents to file for my H1 this year. I received another offer from employer B and they also have collected all documents for filing H1 this year. I have pushed the joining date with employer B to end of April for playing it safe. Employer A has two weeks notice period. My questions are as follows.

    1. Can employer A and B both file H1B petition to increase my chances of approval?
    2. If not, then which employer should I ask to withdraw?

    thanks for answering my questions.

          it is safe two employers in two different projects can file your H1 . Example your are working for Cisco and working for ebay both can file your H1B.

            1. Yes...H1 is sponsored by employers can be sponsored by multiple employers. End is you can only choose one employer out of all.

              Yes - Legally anyone can apply multiple H1B petitions in the same year 4m diff. employers with diff. projects(diff. client/vendor letters),If both of them got picked-up in lottery then wait up to one of the petition gets in to approved state and make sure to withdraw the other pending application from employer B before both gets in to approved state, if this happens one of the approved petition should be revoked by employer B before you make an attempt to cross the border for your H1B stamping with employer A to reduce the chances of risk for your entry. Hope this answer helps for all of your queries, thanks
