Employees in trouble due to loss of Twitter job, H-1B visa may be cancelled, JOB will have to be found in just 60 days


H-1B visa holders have only 60 days

According to current rules, H-1B visa holders are now on a 60-day deadline and their immigration status is at risk. Forbes further stated that finding a new job for these laid-off employees, especially those who are H-1B holders in the country, is extremely important to maintain their immigration status. The H-1B visa is a non-immigrant visa that allows foreign workers in specialized occupations to live and work in the US for a limited period of time.

To be eligible for an H-1B visa, a foreign worker must be part of a company in the US. Interestingly, Twitter’s new owner Elon Musk also arrived in the US on an H-1B visa years ago to work. Forbes reports that there are 620 to 670 Twitter employees in H-1B status, based on the National Foundation for American Policy Analysis of US Citizenship and Immigration Services data. This figure is about 8 percent of the company’s 7,500 employees.

Mass layoffs are happening on the microblogging platform. It is not yet clear how many foreign nationals have been retrenched. Foreign nationals work in the US under H-1B, L-1 or O-1 visas. They all come with different rules. It should be noted that the 2017 US Citizenship and Immigration Services Regulation gives H-1B visa holders a time limit of 60 days after expiration.

Kevin Minor, a partner at Fragomen, told Forbes: “Once an employment waiver, an H-1B visa holder enters a 60-day grace period. In this case, either the person has to leave the US and or Then one has to catch a job somewhere else as soon as possible. If the person does not do this then it is considered a violation of immigration policy.” Minor added, “H-1B visa holders have an advantage as well. Since the individual is already counted against the annual H-1B quota, they may not face too many difficulties in securing a job at another company. Does matter.”
