I am on H1-B visa working for a tech company in San Francisco bay area.
I got this email from my company’s lawyer:
60-day Nonimmigrant Grace Period
A welcome relief to many who may find themselves suddenly terminated is a 60-day grace period granted to nonimmigrant workers in the E-1, E-2, E-3, H-1B, H-1B1, L-1, O-1, and TN classifications. This means that individuals who have been terminated by their employers will now have up to 60 days to have a new employer file a petition on their behalf. (This is similar to the 60-day grace period currently afforded F-1 international students.)
I want to quit my company first, then prepare for interviews and join a different company.
