Default GC Approved Working for filing employer

My GC was approved last month after a very long wait time. Currently I am working for company B on EAD (not the GC filing employer). The question I had was can I continue to work for company B on a part time basis and join company A (GC filling employer).

Company A has a 9 month probation period I am worried if i quiet company B and company A fire me later then I will be with out job.

So I can work for company A (GC filing employer) full time and at the same time work part time with company B.

So this way if company A does fire me during probation period I continue with company B on full time basis. Is this ok will it come to haunt me when I file for citizenship?

According to your profile it took you less than a year to get your GC and you call that a Long Wait. People here stuck for 10 years.

Your question is too confusing otherwise i would have answered as here on IV we are very generous even to the people who doesnt care about us.

Anyways hiring a lawyer and paying some money would be a better place to get a right answer.

When you started using EAD, did you file for AC21? If you did not or don't know what AC21 is, you will want to talk to your attorney.

As you have a GC, you can work for any employer in the range {A, B, C...Z}, work for 2 or more of them simultaneously and handle any kind of job. There is no law that will create a problem out of this during naturalization.

Of course, one can do this with a 485 EAD too, but there is the one restriction of "same or similar".

Kaisersose thank you for your reply. Is their a time limit for how long I have to work for the GC filling employer? what worries me is if they fire me in lets say 1 month after hire during their probation period am I safe? Even though i was working part time some where else.

No minimum period is necessary and firing will not have any negative impact.

Default Minimum work requirement with filing employer

tricky question general rule.

1 week (not recommended questionable by USCIS if complained by anyone)
1 month Questionable by USCIS
2 months ok might not have problems at passport filing
3 months preferable relatively safe
4 months plus you are pretty safe.

Hope this helps

Hi!

My employer has changed the conditions of my employment since we mutually agreed to start the greencard process (reduced benefits, increased my out-of-pocket expenses, did not give yearly increase and bonuses promised at the beginning of my employment). I am now unable to make ends meet with my current salary and there is no sign I will get an increase soon. Will this constitute as valid reason if I quit my job in, say, 1 month from receiving the greencard?

Also, the Senior position specified in the I-140 is not available right now. Do I have the right to claim it, now that the greencard had been approved? If they won't give it to me, will this be a valid reason to quit and not jeopardize my GC with the USCIS?

Please advise. Thank you!
