Ending Your H-1B Employment at MUSC

H-1B employees must notify the Center for Global Health prior to leaving employment, regardless of the reason for the end of the employment (termination, voluntary resignation, H-1B sponsorship from another employer, etc.). MUSC is required by law to report this information to the federal government.

If you have accepted an offer of employment from another employer, refer to our H-1B Change of Employer page for more information on H-1B portability. In these situations, you still must notify CGH in advance regarding your plan to leave your employment at MUSC.

There is no official “grace period” for H-1B status after the period of authorized stay in the US ends. You should plan to depart the US immediately at the end of your employment (authorized period of stay) if you have not received a change of status or if another employer has not filed a new H-1B petition on your behalf.
