After my project ended last month, my employer did not have another project lined up for me, so I was laid off. That same employer now has a new project available for me. If the employer files an H1B amendment for me before the end of my grace period, can I immediately resume working for them on the new project?


Based on FAQs issued by the USCIS earlier this year, it seems that yes, you generally would be allowed to resume working for this employer as soon as the amendment is filed. (05.Oct.2023)
