With a lot of layoffs going on in this time, if a person is laid off on H1b does the employer revoke their visa or do they just have the 60 day grace period to find another sponsor and transfer H1b?

60 day grace. Scroll down a few days ago another OP did a brilliant post about their experience as a PSA. Il try to paste it here. That should really be pinned on this bowl.

OP perhaps you don't understand the Con ept of h1b transfer. Just because you find another employer, an H1b doesn't just get transferred automatically like a car's manufacturer warranty would if you sell your car to someone else within the warranty period. An H1b transfer is exactly like a new h1b (without having to go through a lottery) and that's more true these days than in the past. A new employer has to initiate a new h1b for you, turn in evidence to support why you're suited as a candidate and lca etc. In short, every transfer is like 'starting from scratch' and this includes an extension btw

smart

they revoke but it takes 6 months to process the notice but regardless it’s 60 days grace period to find another sponsor
