Hello,my name is Judith. Thank you for this opportunity to answer your questions.
You can have a concurrent part-time petition filed for the part time employment. You have to be an employee on the payroll and not a contract worker.
Actually the situation could be like this; Full time employee of a company (company A), another full time employment on contract basis working remotely with H1 petitioned through another employer (company B); Is this allowed ?
No this arrangement is not allowed.
Ok, could you please let me know the concept/rules of double employment on H1B; Which of the below options are legal/allowed ?
1. Part time employment with Company A & part time employment with Company B (20 + 20 = 40 hours a week)
2. Full time employment with Company A & part time employment with Company B (40 + 20 = 60 hours a week)
3. 2 full time employments (40 +40 = 80 hours a week)
1. Part time employment with Company A & part time employment with Company B (20 + 20 = 40 hours a week)Allowed
I have tried to do dual full-time concurrent petitions for nurses who work 36 hour weeks and have been denied over and over again.
