My PERM LC was denied, so an appeal was filed, and the case is now pending with BALCA. Can I use the pending BALCA case to extend my H1B status beyond 6 years?


Assuming that the PERM case has been pending for at least 365 days, one normally would be able to get a one-year H1B approval with any employer. A BALCA appeal is considered “pending.” (26.Jun.2017)
