  • Delay in H1..need help

    Hi All,

    My employer applied for my H1B in July 2010 and my status online still says "Initial Review". The problem is that my OPT expired in August and I was working under cap gap till the 1st Oct. Now my employer has asked me to stay home and not work cause my EAD expired and my H1B status is still under Initial review.
    My lawyer has already applied for PP and I am waiting for an update from USCIS.

    Is there any law which would let me work till the time I am waiting for my h1 to get approved? Please let me know if there is any way so that I can talk to my lawyer and get back to work.

    Thank you.

    With PP your employer should receive a decision soon (max 15 days). So hold on.
    This is my opinion and not legal advice.
