My H1-b transfer has been initiated via premium processing. I won't quit until I get my approval, but I'd like to give my current employer some notice. Am I allowed to continue working for my current employer after approval (during notice period), or is that considered an immigration violation?

Yes you can work with approval until you start on the payroll there, you can’t do two jobs at once with the payroll etc

You can technically work for either employer of you have a approved petition from two. Even move back and forth. But not at the same time

Thank you all!

Concurrent H1B employment is a little-known but real thing. As long as your current petition is still valid, you can work for current employer after the new one is approved. The 2nd h1b doesn’t cancel the 1st.

Friends - Is any company hiring? Considering H1B transfer? I have total only 28 months left on my visa? Doesn’t look like the firm is going to sponsor green card. I have been performing well in my department no negative reviews in 4 years yet HR denied to file GC. Apparently they are only considering Managers for GC. Is this the same situation in Big 4 Audit? Please comment.
