Hello. Bad Day. I got fired today. I have 1 week of vacation+2 weeks of company notice. My employer told me to find a job within these 3 weeks. Here is my status. I am an Indian citizen and came to US on F1 and got my OPT and OPT extension and now H1B.
1. My OPT-Extension ended on Jul7th . I am on CAP-GAP currently.
2. My H1-B is approved. It has NOT started yet. It has to start from October 1 2014.
What is my status going to be after these 3 weeks. I will still be called an employee for this company for these 3 weeks. After that I will not . So what is my status after that? I will look for a job immediately. But getting job within 3 weeks is kind of impossible. Considering I have been fired, probably no one will hire me that fast. How should I be in status? what are my options? I am going to request my employer to keep me in status until Oct 1st. If they accept what? if they dont accept what?
