thanks very much i needed to get some info. so i know how will I act on this matter.
Well, if you’ve never used it and you show up in the US a month before it expires, you can be sure the airport inspectors will have lots of questions for you. So, make sure you have papers from your employer stating that the job is still open. As far as an extension goes, the employer would have to file a new petition. You don’t have to worry about going on a black list for never using the visa. You would only go on a black list for misusing the visa.
