Miami, FL asked in Immigration Law for Florida

Q: I am on J1 applied for COS into dependent O3, currently pending. Should I tell my employer about the change.

I am on J1 and applied for COS into dependent O3 visa. Can I tell my employer and move with my husband within a month. Will it be safe to assume that becuase my I 94 expires in 2021 and I applied for COS in March, I can still make a move. Or my status will be jeopardized because of cancellation of current I 94 from the employer.
