Will the USCIS notify my current employer when a new employer files an H1B transfer for me?


No, the USCIS should not send any type of notification to the current employer regarding a change of employer filed on your behalf. H1Bs are not actually “transferred,” so the approval of the new employer’s case doesn’t disrupt the current employer’s petition. There generally is no communication from the USCIS to the current employer in these situations. (01.Feb.2024)
