My friend is on H1 vis and working as contractor for Pharma company. He completed 2-year contract and now its almost two weeks his H1 sponsor (American consultant) did not find another contract. Can he take this 2 weeks or another week as timeoff because recruiter is not paying him during this 2 week bench period. Will there be any issue if he could not get another contract within 3 weeks. My friend also trying for C-2-C contracts and could not find any till now.
Please suggest how to handle the situation.
Can he request H1 sponsor to change the recruiter assigned for him because that lady is not responding to my friends emails or phone calls. My friend sent 2-3 contract positions available in different states and requested her to forward his resume and she didnt get back to him from 2-3 days.
