Concurrent Employment

May an O-1 be paid by more than one employer (also known as Concurrent Employment)?

If you desire to have a second job while employed at Emory in O-1 status, it may be possible. However, the 2nd employer or Emory will need to file a petition for concurrent employment with USCIS. The O-1 authorization is employer specific. Emory’s O-1 authorization will not cover you for employment at another institution. If you are considering a concurrent employment situation, please contact your ISSS advisor prior to assuming the duties at the 2nd employer. Likewise, if you are coming to Emory as a 2nd employer, please notify ISSS of your existing O-1 so that we file your petition appropriately.
