Question

Hello, I left my previous job on May 31st 2022 and could not join new job on time. The new job immigration team filed my new H1b Petition on July 13, 2022 (ie about 15 days pending in the 60 day period). However, today USCIS has sent an RFE. I am a bit concerned because my 60 days grace period will end on July 30 2022 and looks like I will not be able to join before that due to this RFE. Since it will be 60 days past, does this affect my status in the H1b visa? What does the law say?
