I am in H1B status but am currently working for my H1B employer from India. Would it be a violation of H1B status to work for a different employer on the weekends?


If you are not physically in the United States, you are not in H1B status. Therefore, whether you are working for your H1B employer and/or any other employer, it would not be a violation of your H1B status. In general, U.S. immigration law does not apply outside of the United States. (18.Jan.2024)
