Does it raise any red flags to USCIS if an H1B worker moves through multiple employers? I was laid off, and am considering a job offer now, even though I do not think it will last very long. If USCIS sees that I kept moving from one employer to the next, will this job-hopping make me look bad?


No, this typically is not a problem from the USCIS perspective. Over the years, the USCIS has enacted various measures to make it easier for H1B workers to move from employer to employer, when desired. And, USCIS officers are not generally interested in punishing employees for taking advantage of these measures. (15.May.2024)
