Getting salary check from new employer before joining

Cerner change now
Jul 11 6 Comments

I will be changing company soon as My H1-b transfer is in progress (Take approx 3 weeks to change). I start getting salary check from the company which I about to join. And I am also getting my normal paycheck from current company. Does it affect me in any way in longer run. I found online you are not suppose to work for 2 jobs on 1 H1-B, but I think it’s just by an accident from the company I about to join. Does it affect my future H1-B transfers and other immigration related things. I am not sure what to do in this situation. Any suggestions are appreciated.

  • How they can generate your payroll without working?

      I think I am in their system already, because my actual start date was July 1st but due to visa transfer they said for now it’s July 1 but once your visa got transferred let us know we can check with team and decide. They never checked and also HR is so lethargic not picking call and answer emails.

    It's not two jobs at a time. But you cannot work for any other entity than the one sponsoring your H1B. If you have multiple h1 petitions then you are free to work for those employers.
