What is garden leave?

like

I think it’s when Goldman moves you from an office job to their gardener division before cutting you for good.

You should clarify your end date. Try to make it the end of gardening leave to buy yourself more time. Otherwise you just have 60 days.

I am going to reckon that GS is going to follow the letter if the law on this one. Technically your h-1 ends the day you stop working, but try to negotiate.

Also curious to know is Goldman paying off, or did you leave voluntarily?

Hi all, Are H1B results out? Did anyone hear from their immigration teams?

Anyone who has/ heard of fbookers who successfully switched roles and gotten a promotion (L3 to L4)? Context I am planning a switch from analyst to data scientist from a non US location to US. However, L4 is needed for this jump (prob due to visa issues). With the current revamp in PSC cycle, I am not sure if I can successfully get promoted by next year and make the jump. To do so, I heard there needs to be 2 EE (for this half and next half). YOE 5, BASE 100K

BIA Briefs: I’m an associate at an immigration law firm. I determined that immigration isn’t for me So I gave the managing partner my 2 weeks. He wants me to wrap up some BIA briefs before I leave however I’m reviewing the record for a lot these and I’m seeing that a lot of the arguments for Asylum, Withhold, and CAT are incomplete. How I’m going to argue that the IC abused its discretion or misapplied the law when we made a facially insufficient argument for relief?

Hey all. I created this bowl because I know what an intense – but amazing – process immigration is (moved from London to the US a year ago on an O-1 visa). Happy to answer questions or just chit chat.

Need advice: I just started this week at my new company and prior to joining I brought tickets with my friends together for a one week vacation to the West Coast. It will be the week of 7/4. Now I just talked to my manager about taking the week off, but found out we are actually really busy that week. There were some compromise, but still not ideal. I have really 3 options: change my group flight, cancel, or work during the vacation. Any other options or advice will be helpful!
