I am in H1B status and am being laid off. The company will continue to pay my salary for three months as part of a severance package. Will my 60-day grace period start after I receive the last paycheck?


The 60-day grace period generally starts at the cessation of employment, not on the date the last check is issued. (24.Aug.2022)
