Employer not giving I-797 A( Original approval notice)

Hi RedBus2US team,

I am currently working on L-1 visa in USA with employer A. This year Employer B filed for my H-1 visa, and lucikly it got approved. Employer B after approval, shared only the I-797C. Now when I am asking for I-797 A( Original approval notice)with the new I-94, they are saying it will be shared once i join my first project.

My question is can they hold my I-797A like this?And if need arise can i jump to Employer C with the I-797C that they have provided me.



Some employers hold on to the 797 for fear of you changing employers.

However, they should provide you the bottom I-94 as that will govern your status from Oct 1. Ask them to provide that I-94 at least.

If you want to move to C, you can use just the receipt number for this. If you have approved 797, its better but you can do this w/ just the receipt number as well.
