Hello. I’m working on H1B and recently got a promotion. My company is amending my H1B and told me that since my new job is remote I can only work at my apartment (since it’s my legal location). Is there any chance they can figure out I’m working remotely from somewhere else?

You can work outside of your LCA location for 60 days per the short term placement rule, but technically your employer needs to pay for room and board during that time.

I interviewed for analyst at Deloitte in September. Cleared 2 rounds of interview alongwith an assignment submission.
Got a positive feedback from HR manager. I was told( on a call in October) they'll get back but till today, I haven't received any clarity. Another HR contacted me in November regarding a different opportunity but same is the case here after 2 interviews. Is it normal in Deloitte to ghost the candidates after the interview or do I have some hope here?

I went on an interview yesterday. To say it was disappointing would be an understatement. The partner that interviewed me was nice, but he did not understand transactional law. At my last firm, I was a hybrid between transactional tasks and litigation. When billable hours came up, he scoffed at my previous requirement and stated that his were at minimum 60% more. He told me about the “good ole days” when associates were expected to work 200 billable hours a month. He can’t find anyone.

Dear fellow immigrant fishes! I just got a copy of i765 approval. It says it’s valid until 8/4/2024. Does this mean I don’t need work visa anymore to work?

So if this means I don’t need my new employer to file O1 visa for me, it would really help A LOT 🥹!!
