RFE Respond time for an employer


My Current L1 B visa is getting expired on 17 th sep 2012.On May9th, my future employer Filed H1B through premium processing . got RFE on 21-May-12., received Hard copy to my employer on 01-Jun-12The RFE is related to asking more information on the employer . i spoke to my employer they said that they have time till Aug-2012. to respond RFE. i am forcing them to respond atleast my end july-12. employer is saying even if they respond early they will start review the RFE response only after the time mentioned in the RFE Hard copy document.

is that true?, please advice.

Well, we do NOT know how USCIS processes RFE requests. It may or may not be true…
