Hello,

You can't jump straight to the I-485 for employer B; you would have to start the process from scratch, beginning with the PERM. The benefit of having an approved I-140 from employer A is that you can 1) use the priority date from that filing when you file the I-140 for employer B; and you can 2) qualify for a 3-year extension on your H-1B when your 6 years are up.

Best,
Leena Kamat
