J1 transfer from non-profit institute to a for-profit company?

J1 transfer from non-profit institute to a for-profit company? Topic: H1b case status
July 19, 2019 / By Carla
Question: I am currently working for a non-profit research institute on J1. I have found a new job in a pharma company . company is ready to hire me with J1 for now ( since no H1B left) and apply for H1B in april. But they want me to find out if my current institution agrees to transfer the J1. I am going to talk to my current employer tomorrow. I know this is a rare case. Has anyone been in the same situation? how easy is to transfer J1 non-profit and to for-profit? Thanks dude. Actually, They filed for H1B last month but the petition reached on the last day and it was not selected in the lottery. Thats why the company wants to hire me on J1 for now and switch to H1 in april ( oct officially). I dont know how the category this is gonna work but the lawyer said he can handle the transfer if my current employer agrees.

If you are trying to change J-1 programs, that's possible. If you're trying to work as if you were an H-1B without being in the H-1B classification, that is prohibited. If does not sound like you would be transferring from one J-1 program to another J-1 program. The transfer of a participant from one program (sponsor) to another may be allowed at the discretion of the responsible officers and must be within the same category. The responsible officer of the program to which the participant seeks to transfer is required to verify the participant's visa status and eligibility, to issue a new Form DS-2019 reflecting the transfer, and to obtain the release of the participant from the current responsible officer, who indicates approval of the transfer by completing and signing block 8 of the new Form DS-2019. Transfers are not permitted in all categories, and a transfer does not extend the maximum duration of the program. Participants should address all inquiries regarding change of category to the responsible officer of their programs. If there are no more H-1B numbers available, that means you cannot change to the H-1B classification. The USCIS announced on December 22nd that the H-1B cap had been reached on December 21st. New cap-subject H-1B petitions should be received by the USCIS starting on April 1, 2010 for employment commencing on October 1, 2010. Your prospective employer needs to submit a timely filed application for you to change of status to H-1B. If they do, you could start employment as an H-1B on Oct 1, 2010.

You sound like those people back in the 1800s who diagnosed people as wasting away from nervous disorders before the identification of diseases like tuberculosis. Term "RLS" was coined in 1944 and there is documentary evidence of this disease going back 300 years - see this link: http://www.restlesslegs.org.uk/history_rls.html One of my best friends has had RLS all her life and, yes, it is a real problem. She tried all of the major commercial drugs available, but experienced too many negative side effects (having witnessed this, I think all of these drugs are bad news). She finally got relief this past summer when she started taking vitamin supplements, specifically a multi-vitamin, an omega fatty acid 3/6/9 complex and an iron supplement in the morning and calcium/magnesium tablets and liquid glucosamine at night. We weren't sure which of these supplements was the one that was helping so we did some research after the fact and apparently iron and/or calcium/magnesium are well known to help RLS and are highly recommended (by everybody except drug companies of course). My friend started taking supplements because she was feeling run down - she also had bloodwork done and her doctor told her she was anemic, suggested iron supplements and gave her an exact iron dosage and did follow-up tests 3 months later. I would suggest doing the same as it turns out that you can get iron poisoning if you overdose iron (as the human body cannot flush excess iron). Anyway, it has been several months and she rarely experiences RLS symptoms now.

Its real. My mother-in-law has it. Most nights (but not all) when she's ready to fall asleep her legs start kicking. She can't do anything about it. She does notice it a link to how stressed she is and she doesn't take any meds for it. I think the med companies do make a bigger deal out of it than they need to just to make some money, but it is a great bother to those who have it. I am sure that noticing what triggers your restless leg syndrome and seeking out natural remedies or therapies would be way better than just taking the meds. Medicine treats the symptoms not the cause so you'd still have what ever ails you plus the nasty side effects.

I have RLS and it is a very REAL condition. My father had it but was undiagnosed . I have had it for about 10 years now and it is a very severe problem. It is not just the occasional leg twitch that most people get in their sleep. It is a constant ( about every 8 to 10 seconds ) hard convulsing jerk, all night long , causing tendinitis in my legs, hips and knees. One of the causes is nerve damage caused by taking drugs like Benedryl for prolonged periods of time (which I did for allergies) Without warnings on the Benedryl saying that it may be a side effect there wasn't any way that I could know this may manifest. People are probably more affected by RLS because MORE PEOPLE ARE TAKING BENEDRYL AND DRUGS THAT CONTAIN BENEDRYL....LIKE TYLENOL PM. So don't judge the syndrome without knowing more about it.

with regard to the only government aspects i understand of is in cities that desire to rebuild their downtowns. A catering provider does not extra healthful this kind, because of the fact it won'tchronic organisation into downtown. yet, i might initiate at city corridor or your county courthouse. forget state and federal aspects. One individual stated that there have been not aspects attainable to for-earnings companies ... it rather is erroneous. There are certainly aspects attainable to for-salary, yet they are all innovation aspects (i've got been efficient in getting 2 for clientele).

I have no idea where you got the idea that a nonprofit is "far too controlling and stifles effectiveness". Sounds like you don't understand the difference in a for-profit and a nonprofit. A for-profit is set up to make money. That's its primary focus. If that means cutting services or not serving a particular clientele, so be it; the goal is to turn a profit. If the for-profit turns a profit, its investors get a pay off. Its success is determined by how much profit it makes. A nonprofit is set up to meet a mission. It CAN turn a profit. It can sell services and products. It can pay competitive salaries to staff. If the nonprofit turns a profit, the investors do NOT receive any money, as their investments were donations; the money goes back into the nonprofit to pay expenses (including staff salaries). It's success is determined by whether or not it meets its mission, how many people are served and what measurable difference its services make in its clients lives. Both nonprofits and forprofts are businesses. Both need: -- a needs assessment showing the business and its services are needed and wanted, and by whom -- a business plan, showing how the business will staffed, what the budget will look like, how resources needed for the business will be secured and paid for (business site, utilities, staff salaries, equipment, etc.), how results of the services will be defined, tracked and reported, how expenses and income will be accounted for, how income will be generated -- investors willing to give start up funds.

Unless you have the money, non-profit will give you the best opportunity for private, state and grants assistance.
