Thread: Job omitted on H1B application

  1. #1
    Hello,

    A few years ago I worked for a US company on TN visa.
    But just for a few weeks, between 6 to 8. It was an
    awful environment with awful people. They didn't tell
    me much. But I know that they didn't like my
    experienced suggestions. They just cut me loose
    one day.

    I've kept this job off of my resume. Nothing good
    ever came from talking about it.

    This past year, I had a job offer. The company has
    since sponsered me for an H1B visa. Their lawyers took
    my resume and submitted it to the government. The
    lawyers, and my company, do not know about this position.

    I hate to lie. But there was nothing good that ever came
    from this job. If I tell the lawyers/company, it will open
    up a can of worms. And I would really like to forget it all.
    If I bring it up now, I would feel like I'm admitting/
    fessing up to lying. And it causes me a lot of stress.

    However, I'm sure when the H1B application is processed,
    the government will find out about this job.

    Do you think this is something to worry about?
    Am I, or my H1B application, in trouble now?

    What is the best course of action?

    Thanks a lot!

    Wait, your post is a little bit hazy. Give some sort of specifics and let's see what we can do.

    I can say right now that lying to the government is not a good idea, especially if that company you'd like to forget sponsored you initially.

    Yes, the government will look in to your visa history and once they do, your omission will be discovered and your application viewed as fraudulent.

    I'd expect a denial.

    I believe this article about h1b签证材料 would definitely help u out a lot. If u don't understand what it means u can go google translate. They have one of the best translating app online.
