I was laid off from my H1B position, and was able to find a new employer who is willing to file for me before the end of my grace period. The new position is much more junior than the position I was previously in, however. I was in a wage level 3 position, but this is wage level 1. Is that likely to be an issue with the USCIS?


Typically, moving to a higher or lower wage level with a new employer would not create any issues with the USCIS. (08.May.2024)
