GCKarma is on a distinguished road
Default Change of Employer after 140 is approved

I know that one can change the employer once I-140 is approved and still retain the Priority Date.But has to start the GC from the scratch with the new employer.
I have heard that in order to retain the priority date the employer should not revoke LC and I-140.
I work for a fortune 500 company.And they go by rules.Thus, if I leave the company, my employer will inform INS that I left the job. My question is will it revoke my LC and 140 too?

Please advice.

NO. What you are probably referring to is the revocation of the H-1B petition. Employers normally do that to protect themselves from the former employee claiming backwages...

This will not have any impact on the approved LC...
