Can an H1B approved in this year’s cap be transferred before October 1st to another employer so I can join them directly?


It is potentially possible to get a second H1B approval without joining the first employer that filed under the cap. But, for various procedural reasons, we normally do not file these cases before October 1st. If there is need for a change in employer, it is best to schedule a consultation  with an attorney to go over the options, risks, and strategies. (14.Jul.2014)
