Employer B filed an H1B change of employer petition for me, and it was just approved. I now wish to remain with Employer A. Is that possible?


Generally speaking, there is no requirement that the beneficiary move to the new employer once the H1B change of employer has been approved. As long employer A’s approved H1B petition remains valid, the H1B worker typically is permitted to remain with that employer. (11.Dec.2019)
