My H1B change-of-employer petition has been pending for more than 240 days. Do I now need to stop working?


In general, the 240-day limit only applies to extensions with the same employer, when 240 days has passed beyond the I-94 expiration date. For a change of employer, one generally could continue working while the petition remains pending. (04.Dec.2017)
