Can I switch jobs within a month of I-140 Approval?

Additional context: My H-1B has plenty of time on it (2021). New employer will initiate PERM again but I can retain the priority date.

It's usually 6 months. Your company may have an additional hook. Read the papers you signed.

Even better, ask your new employer to put you in touch with their immigration specialist, pass them any agreements you have signed and they will tell you exactly what needs to be done. I did this in my last transition

I-140 comes into play only during extensions beyond 6 years. Since you have ways to go, there should be nothing stoping you from transferring your H1 to a new employer. But if you wait 6 months after 140 approval, you can leverage that to extend beyond 6 years when the time comes even if your current employer with whom you have the 140 approved decides to revoke (which they can’t if 6 months has gone by). Else your new employer has to file for your GC and need that 140 for extensions beyond 6 years. Consult an immigration lawyer if my answer is confusing.

Thanks ATK1 & PwC1. Answers make sense.

Waited for I-140 approval. Now joining ATK. Grateful and excited!

Hey guys - interested in joining the guard or USAR.

From my perspective it seems like less hours, more pay and less stress throughout the deal process. Obviously the biggest challenge is actually landing deals and hoping they close, which I’m sure it’s own breed of stress. Would appreciate any perspective on this.

I interviewed with a firm (firm 1) and I'm pretty sure I'm getting offer. I know I want to work there, but I also know the offer is going to be low and I don't want to take a pay cut. Continued....

When saving docs to the system, I notice some firms consistently put the project name first and title second, e.g., Project Mountain - Escrow Agreement. I don’t know why, but it bothers me not having the document title first. If for instance my browser/window is too small, all you see is Project Mountain—not Escrow Agreement. Also feel like it’s easier if you were to sort alphabetically. So unimportant, but is there a reason for project name first?

I wanted to check if anyone has done this and if it will cause any issue on visa or GC front given that visa is tied to the salary and I wouldn't get paid my full salary for the 2 weeks. TIA!
