Hi, good day! had a H1B visa valid from oct 2008 to sep’11.
Travelled to US inJan 2009 and in 5 months had to come back to India due to a family emergency , exactly the next day i joined the client’s place. (For 5 months, was on bench, am not sure if payroll was run. )
Haven’t gone back to US since then. Can another employer file petition for approval using H1B cap exempt? Is this possible? Or is this too late?
