If I am considered as a independently contracted physician at my 2nd place of employment can a concurrent H1B be filed? I was employed with a emergency Room and just was told they cannot do a concurrent? I am just really confused about the whole concurrent H1B Visa etc.
Confused as to the whole concurrent H1B visa requirements. Was told that because they consider the employees as independent contracted phsycians then they are unable to file the concurrent. Is there another way to file a concurrent H1B and still maintain my current position at my second job. I hope this makes sense. I also have an LLC which I am unsure if my LLC can file a concurrent H1B? Hope I am making sense. I was misled by my current employer that I would qualify for student loan repayment through the FQHC but had to take a second job when I realized I do not requalify.
So me having an LLC of my own here can my LLC petition for H1B Concurrent>?
But the concurrent H1B VISA application needs to be with the company which I will be working for. For example, if I am working in an Emergency Department the petitioner needs to be from that ER correct. Can I have someone with a current S-corp petition for a concurrent H1B Visa if I will not be directly working through them?
So if I could get a sponsoring corporation, who contracts me out, if I am contracted out to say an Emergency Department, then the Emergency department would pay the sponsor who in turn pays me? Correct. Sorry I'm being such a pain I'm just trying to get this right
So last time, say I have a current s-corp OR LLC owner willing to file a concurrent H1B for me, I would be able to resume employment through them with a company who says they do not file that? For example, I was employed in the ED with a company called Schumacher. They informed me that they do not file concurrent H1B's and as a result could not continue my employment, however, if I am able to get an S-corp or LLC owner to agree to file a concurrent I should be able to resume my employment correct? As long as the concurrent H1B is filed?
