Can I take unpaid leave during visa transfer? Or I need to keep my paystub going?

Same boat, really want to take a leave or just resign, but gotta wait for transfer

Lol I know right? Such a painful process

@OP you can go over on your PTO... you might just have to pay back the time when you leave, but might be your safest option

you can be unemployed for 60 days I think

You can start working for the new company as soon as they file the transfer paper work.
