    60 days rule got applied on 17th January,2017 and is active as of now. Not sure how long will it last in this admin.

    Note: I am not a lawyer.

    H1b is not valid during the grace period. 60 days is a period to either adjust status to other category or find another employer. H1b status terminates the moment you are terminated or there is no valid employment.

    Confused, if H1B is terminated , you go out of status, with the 60 day grace period rule in effect I am not sure if you are considered as out of status , I know you cannot work in that period unless you transfer your H1B to another employer.
