My project is about to end and I need to move to a new H1B employer. I found a company willing to sponsor me, but the position is only 20-hours per week. Is that ok? If I find a second employer to sponsor me for another part-time position, can I work for both companies at the same time?

An H1B petition can be filed for part-time employment, so the fact that this position is only for 20-hours per week should not cause the petition to be denied. Similarly, concurrent employment is permitted. The second employer could file the petition for concurrent employment, whether the new position is part- or full-time. (09.Jan.2020)
