Answers
1. You can keep the PD only as long as the sponsoring employer does not revoke your I-140, go out of business and USCIS does not revoke the I-140 OR, USCIS does not revoke the I-140 for fraud.

2. No.


Now section 1 says that the employer can revoke your I-140 application but section 2 says employer cannot withdraw the application. What Is there any difference between revoking an application and withdrawing an application?

As far I am aware, based on what my new immigration firm has told me, once your I-140 is approved, the only way to loose your original PD is that USCIS revokes it for fraud or misrepresentation.

In the event that the alien is the beneficiary of multiple petitions under sections 203(b)(1), (2), or (3) of the Act, the alien shall be entitled to the earliest priority date. A petition revoked under sections 204(e) or 205 of the Act will not confer a priority date, nor will any priority date be established as a result of a denied petition. A priority date is not transferable to another alien.
Thanks.....good thing is that copy of i140 approval notice is not mandatory...just a receipt number annotation is fine

That is correct, but copy of the approval makes your case fool prove. Like what Anand has.

I think this is a pretty common item of concern. Even when I was about to change jobs, I was nervous about this.
