I was laid off from my H1B job, but my employer will pay me severance pay for the next 4 weeks. When does my 60-day grace period start?


Assuming you otherwise qualify, the 60-day grace period normally would start upon the termination of employment. Payment of severance pay typically would not factor into this determination. (10.Sep.2020)
