Planning to resign and move to a competitor in the same field. I am also under H1B. When I resign, will my firm let me go without the two weeks? What are some of your similar experiences?

I think you can do 2 weeks then but make sure you have your new 797 before giving notice

If they do, the silver lining is two weeks to do whatever you want!

You must transfer H1B before resigning.

Are you on a project OP

Yup long term.

No they won’t unless you leave on a very bitter note. I also moved to a competitor and parted way on very cordial terms

Get your H1B premium processed so you have it soon. You are authorized to work as soon as you get a receipt so the two weeks shouldn't be a concern.

At a minimum, you’ll have 6-7 days. If you’re working on a confidential or sensitive project then they might stop you from coming to work, but your paycheck will be on for at least a week which is what matters for your H1B status

There's no such thing as an h1b transfer. It's a new employer petition cap exempt. I just did this.

Yeah that’s what I want. My paycheck to be there
