I am working for Company A in H1B status, and Company B filed a petition requesting a change of employer. If Employer B’s petition is denied, can I keep working for Employer A? Will Employer A be notified of the denial?


One who receives an H1B denial is normally permitted to continue working pursuant to a previously approved H1B petition, as long as it has not been revoked. The only company that would normally be notified of a denial would be the employer that filed the denied petition. (24.Jul.2019)
