I was in H1B status and, right before my I-94 expired, I applied for a change of status to H-4. Two weeks later, my former employer sent me my final paycheck. Is it a problem that I am receiving this payment even though I am no longer in H1B status?


Generally speaking, so long as the foreign national was in valid H1B status at the time the work was performed, being paid after the H1B expiration date would not be a violation of immigration law. (27.Nov.2019)
