I was on H1B and got laid off in Dec. I tried to find job but before 60 days I was not able to get the desired position. Hence I applied for H4 and H4-EAD. I received receipt for both application. However it looks like it will take 3 - 5 more months for it to be approved based on tracker.
I received offer from startup company and I am excited to join them. They are ready to start my H1b process and asking me to join on receipt. current H1B wait time is 7 month because of suspension of premium processing as well as Covid-19.
My question is
- What is my current status ? I have on H1 or H4?
- Is is ok to start on receipt?
- what happens if my H1B is denied. (Can I go back to H4 immediately? )
