I am in CA on H1b, was out some time ago for surgery. I went on Short term disability, used disability insurance benefit via EDD CA state website and got paid by them. Will it impact my GC in future?

The worst year for any H1b holder. No one sponsors/hires. No premium. Companies are planning layoffs. We can’t travel. Cant extend quickly. Can’t transfer. Other countries are in a recession. Wow!

So due to COVID-19, biometrics is delayed, will USCIS be responsible to ensure this gets expedited when resuming operations? Who can make up for the lost time?

Am I the only one who has lost their job on h1b here? Really hoping the 60 day grace period gets extended somehow but chances are slim. Job market is dead. Not sure what other options I have.
