Hi all,

I changed my original company which filed for all my green card process after working with them for 5 years (With their consent) because I got an offer from a different company. But since I went though a head hunter, they have a clause that I need to work on their W2 for 6 months before I join the end client.
I have not invoked AC-21.
Now that the old company revoked my H1, I got a the below mail from USCIS.
I guess I need to wait for a few days to get the mail.
Curious to know if anybody went through this.... Please share your experiences and suggestions.

rxsimha,

Could you please update here what happened in your case?

I am in exact same boat, my gc-employer has cancelled my old H1 when I moved after working for 4.5 years. I have not filed AC-21.
your help is greatly appreciated.

Dont worry about it. When employers revoke the H1B, this is what you see from USCIS. Just make sure that ur employer does not revoke ur 140 that may cause problem some time. Although, u r fully covered by AC21 law.

I am a July 2007 I-485 filer, applied EAD as well but never used it as I continued working on H1. I had been working for the GC employer for 8.5 yrs (big product development company, Full-time job). They extended my H1 again in Mar 2009 for 3 yrs based on my approved I-140. I resigned my job with the GC sponsoring employer in July this year. I joined my new employer (another full-time development position) and they filed for my H1 COE and got it approved for 3 yrs. My new employer also filed AC21 letter with USCIS.

My GC sponsoring/old employer sent my H1 withdrawal letter to USCIS end of Aug and I saw a soft-lud on my approved H1 in Mar 2009 and also soft updates on my and my spouse's (dependent petition) I-485. The status of the H1 which was withdrawn still shows as Approved, unlike in your case where its re-opened, maybe because my new employer filed AC21 and USCIS knows that I am working for another company. Just a thought.

Hi,
Looks like more of us in the same boat..Anything to be done or are we good as long as we are on EAD already?
