Does My Sponsoring Employer Has to Withdraw My I-140 or Inform USCIS?

Hi William,

My current employer filed the I-140 form for me under the EB1-Outstanding Researcher category about 2 months ago. Now, I have a better job opportunity. If I change job, does my sponsoring employer has to withdraw my I-140 or inform USCIS?


Unlike the H1-B visa case, there is no requirement for the employer to notify the USCIS of termination of the employment or withdraw the I-140 petition. Many employers do not withdraw I-140, after the alien beneficiary's employment termination.

But in a Labor Certification case, the employer has a valid reason for I-140 revocation, because the certification job for the alien beneficiary is no longer valid.
