GC_SUCK is on a distinguished road
Default After Green Card, do I need to stick to same employer?

I got my GC on 09/18/07. Now my consulting company (how sponsored my GC) is having issues with the client and client is thinking to terminate the contract.

Client want to bring me to there pay roll. In other words they are offering my permanent position.

My consulting company does not have immediate opening for me.

It is not even a month that I got my GC. And I am with the same consulting company for about 6.5 years now.

Please help me. What should I do? If I accept the offer will I get problem at citizenship stage? If I do not accept offer I will loose job and I don't know how much time I have to wait till my consulting company find job for me.

Default Get fired!!

Get yourself fired from your current company & join your client. As it is not ur intent to move and you are foreced to move. You can explain this during naturalization. Also as it is the same job you dont need to worry..

Good luck!!

Default Do what you ought to do..

Paranoia at its helm. There are things that protect you like AC-21 when you don't have a GC. You have a GC, move on to the client job..

The only concern is if you had a contract signed with your consulting firm that you would not join your client for x number of years yada yada, so check your contract, if nothing is in there, you should be fine..

Once you get your GC, you can do what you want when you want. You can work anywhere. Your consulting company nor any company has the right to hold you on any contract whatsoever, unless ofcourse your client has non competitive contract that prohibits you from joining them.

For naturalization, it does not matter whatsoever. You can say that you were offered a better position that matched your skill set and experience and hence you ("on your own free will") joined another company. And hey, congrats. Worry not. U R much better off. Love your job, not the company!!! And you can work 2 jobs that are not even related. No one cares -

Reminds me of the story about a mighty elephant who's been tied w/ a thin chain since t'was a baby. It just stopped trying to escape coz it's been conditioned that effort is futile though it can easily snap the chain. Run my friend...you're a CHEETAH now!!! Kudos!

Accept the offer like I am planning to do. Job is most important.

I also just got GC

I think that in this case this person can "move on". HOWEVER - I would retain STRONG DOCUMENTATION that this is not your choice and that the consulting firm is letting you go!

We need to understand this as a group and my attorney tells me that: I am being brought into this country to do this job - I can not simply leave the next day after getting GC on my own accord (unless in very similar job -- as in this case); BUT this is a grey area where we must spend "some" amount of time in the job we are being brought in for -- six months? 9 months? 1 yr?

My attorney has indicated 6-9 months is reasonable to move on to something completly new (as I have been doing this job for 6.8 years and am tired of it).

Help anyone???????

You have slogged all these years. Take a break, have a Kit-Kat and take a vacation in Italy. Have heard it's pretty good. Have a good time.

Beware of contractual agreements between your company and the end client. Normally they will have contrac that you will no join the vendor or client directly after the contract is terminated. You will be in legal problems. This is nothing to do with your GC.

I recommend, since you go GC find a job else where once you are fired by your company.

Ahhh I wish i can say After Green Card

dude take the job if they are offering you a good deal (opportunity does not knock on your door everyday)... its simple as that, you will be in the same field of work your new employer can back you in case there is a "query"

Dont sulk over 6.5 years - they gained as much as you did in these 6.5 years!

Good luck!

Let us know what you did...
