I’m on a work visa and my hours were cut OR my pay was reduced OR placed on no-pay leave OR furloughed. Can I stay?

For nearly all work visas, any reduction of your hours or pay is functionally equivalent to a lay off. The only exception is if your LCA or petition specified an hourly wage instead of an annual wage; in this a reduction of hours may be acceptable (though you should check with your company’s lawyers).

You may have a 60 day grace period, and if you wish to stay, look at the next question.
