Hello peeps. While on H1B, can we go on a leave of absence?

Email immigration team.

You cannot take a sabbatical (“just because” break). But if it’s like a medical leave of absence, then you may be ok up to a certain duration. Like D1 said, email your HR/Immigration team to confirm for your specific scenario

I think you could do an LoA/ sabbatical but might (and I’m unsure) have to be outside the US. My manager took a sabbatical but he spent time outside the country

As long as you get paid you can go on leave of absence. Whether you are in country or out does not matter. I am currently on one for 4 months. If you can’t get paid, work with your immigration and determine the feasibility. Some companies support it but many don’t.

Hey, is medical leave paid?
