Is it true that if an I-140 was approved at least 180 days ago, the employer cannot revoke the I-140 based on a layoff?


No, that is not accurate. The employer can revoke the I-140 at any point prior to GC approval. It is just that once the I-485 has been filed and pending for 180 days, the I-140 revocation does not mean the I-485 will automatically be denied. The case could still move forward under AC21.
