Can an H1B worker continue to work past the “Admit Until Date” on the I-94, if the H1B visa stamp is valid beyond the I-94 date?


No, the visa “stamp” is an entry document, only. The I-94 determines status. If a person wants to work beyond the H1B I-94 date, a petition to extend status typically must have been filed by the employer prior to expiration of the I-94. (29.Jun.2015)
