An alien admitted or otherwise provided status in E-1, E-2, E-3, H-1B, H-1B1, L-1, O-1 or TN classification and his or her dependents shall not be considered to have failed to maintain nonimmigrant status solely on the basis of a cessation of the employment on which the alien’s classification was based, for up to 60 consecutive days or until the end of the authorized validity period, whichever is shorter, once during each authorized validity period. DHS may eliminate or shorten this 60-day period as a matter of discretion. Unless otherwise authorized under 8 CFR 274a.12, the alien may not work during such a period.
此宽限期是为了让你有时间卷铺盖走人，不是合法身份的延续，因此并不可以工作。另外，国土安全部有权 「eliminate or shorten this 60-day period as a matter of discretion」。
「自己辞职」是否也有60天宽限期？有不少律师的意见是：只有被公司解雇才有60天宽限期，自己辞职没有；但也有律师明确认为：”The new rule introduces an up to 60-day grace period following termination of employment (by either employee or employer) for E-1, E-2, E-3, H-1B, H-1B1, L-1, O-1 or TN visa holders” —— 不管是公司、还是员工解除的雇佣关系，都适用。
An alien in any authorized period described in paragraph (l) of this section may apply for and be granted an extension of stay under paragraph (c)(4) of this section or change of status under 8 CFR 248.1, if otherwise eligible.
