Several years ago, my I-140 from Employer A was approved with a June 2015 priority date. Last year, I received an approved I-140 from Employer B, which lists the same June 2015 priority date. If I decide to move back to Employer A, can I transfer the priority date back to Employer A’s I-140?


You don’t exactly “transfer” the priority date from one I-140 to another. Rather, assuming the initial I-140 has not be revoked for fraud, misrepresentation, revocation of the LC, or material error, the beneficiary generally can retain that priority date for any other I-140. Doing so has no impact on the validity of the I-140 petition from Employer A. (02.Jan.2020)
