Default Question on filing New H1B(from multiple employers)

All,

My friend (from India) is planning to apply for this year's H1B quota (this is a new fresh H1B). So my question is can he ask more than one employer( the reason being, he has not yet decided the empoyers yet)to file his H1B. Will it be a problem??. I was sure about H1B transfer( can go for multiple employers) but not this one. Can anyone throw some light on it.

Thanks
Sree

Looks like your question has no straight-forward answer. I don't know what effect that would have on his chances with approval or USCIS stand on multiple application by different employers for same person. Or even if they have any means of detecting such multiple applications. If they don't detect such multiple applications then I would say your friend is wasting the visa quota if he has all his multiple applications approved and that in my opinion is not right.

Default No problem

There is no problem in filing H1b with many employers.It is said that a person can keep multiple H1b but work on one Full time. So dont worry about anything, If employer is spending, file as many as you want.

Default Yes, not a problem

one can hold multiple approved H1s but can work on any one of them. Your friend is doing a smart thing but applying multiple H1s - good to have backups.

It is legal but not in the interests of this forum, this deprives a fellow h1b applicant of his visa.

gcseeker2002, I truly understands the concerns, I am with you. Thats what i want to convey to my friend back home and ask him to choose one good employer instead of multiple employers.

Thanks
