I am working in a full time H1B position, but my employer says they need to cut back my hours to about 20 hours per week. Is that allowed?


Assuming the existing H1B petition was filed for a full-time position, you should not rely on that approval to work part time. However, your employer can file an H1B amendment requesting that the position be approved as a part-time position. And, typically, you then could move to part time upon the filing of that petition.
