No. As a franchisee, if you are issued a W2 by the parent chain/company then you cannot. In general the rule is that on H1B only your H1B sponsorer employer can issue you an W2

Haven't you heard - "You are not a Patel, if you do not own a motel"?

Yes you can. I am on H1B and own one. Talk to a good attorney. The only downfall, you cannot withdraw money from your business.

^so what is the point then ?

[Advice needed] I have a job offer from US based company and they are willing to sponsor me on L1. However with new proclamation, it looks like the process will further be delayed by 3 months and I can get a valid work visa by June/July at best. Alternatively I have an option of relocating to Canada as well. This process should be fairly quick and easy. My question is - 1. Should I opt for Canada or wait for US Visa? 2. Are there any chances that Biden administration overturns this. TIA

Hi everyone, I need your advice. I've been interviewing with MBB and Tier 2 firms over the past few years. However I was never well prepared for case studies. I now decided to take 6-8 months and seriously prepare for cases/mental math and try them again next year. I currently have Victor Chengs book and few others. What else would you recommend for me? How can i lay out a plan to study? Any source you can recommend free or paid?
