  • Can I take a loss of pay while on H1B

    I currently work for a University and the rules are that we cannot use vacation days in advance. I am planning to go to India for personal reasons and dont have adequate vacation days.

    Can I take a few days of loss of pay ( say 4-5 days ). Will it affect my visa status. Shd the University do anything at their end (legally ) to okay the leave of absence. My department really doesnt know anything about the H1B visa rules. So I am thinking if I should inform Immigration Services (ISS ) about my leave.

    As long as you are not getting paid for the time you are not in the U.S., you are fine.

      When you are outside the country, you no longer hod and valid status. So there is no problem if they don't pay you when yu go on a vacation outside the country. However, as long as you are in H1B status inside U.S, you need to be paid and have appropriate pay slips.
