B-2 Visa

Does the H-1 60 days grace period apply when one quits a job?

1. Does the new 60 day grace period for H-1Bs apply to one after quitting their job ? Or is it only applied to situations only in the cases where the employer terminates the job?
2. I am on H-1B and plan to quit my job and move back to India, I would need 3-4 weeks to wrap up things here after quitting the job. I am trying to see if I can use this 60 day grace period.

1. According to the regulations what my best guess is it was reserved for those circumstances where you had no choice but to be out of status, but if you quit voluntarily I don't think you can claim the 60 day grace period.

I would like to thank and congratulate for great work done by Mr. Khanna and team. My father stays in USA on B2 visa and as per guideline he cannot stay here for more than 6 months in a financial year. My father is having ill health and my mother is no more. I am completely responsible to take care of him. With the help of Mr. Khanna, We applied B2 Visa extension for my father second time and it got approved again. Otherwise, we all would have to go back to India. Peace of mind. I have received the approval notice. I really appreciate friendly and professional behavior of all team member I had interaction with. Whenever I had any query, it was resolved immediately. I strongly recommend Mr. Khanna for all immigration related matters. Thanks Again.
