One of my friends wants to switch to a new employer B based on approved I-140 (crossed 6 months) through his current employer A.
Need the below clarification based on the new I-140 rules:
1. Until his first H1B extension (1.5 Years) is getting expired, he can continue in new employer B. However, can he file for 2nd extension after 1 Year with current I-140 provided new employer B has not filed the PERM and also his current employer A had withdrawn I-140 immediately after he left.
2, If 2nd H1B extension is not possible with new employer B, can he go back and file 2nd H1B extension with his current employer A?
If he is going back to his current employer A, to not go out of status, does his current employer A need to file PERM again as his I-140 might have been withdrawn by current employer A?
