Can H4 EAD work in USA while H1 is out of country for 3 months, working from India

Hi,

we have H1 as well as H4 stamped visas. can H4 EAD work in USA while H1 will be out of country for 3 months and works from India. H1 gets salary in India for those 3 months.

Hi @Jagadish_Kotagiri

If H1’s payroll is not running in US, then effectively the H1B status is being abandoned.

H4 status automatically gets abandoned if H1B status is stopped.

As per my opinion, H4 cannot stay and work in US is H1B is leaving US and his/her US payroll is being stopped.
