    H1B got picked up but got laid off by the current employer

    Hello All, Thank you so much for your prompt replies. I have an update for you , can you please help me with this ? I have found a new job in which, the staffing agency is currently wanting me to join on my current OPT. Once my H1B approved , Come 1st October , they want me to take a leave for a couple of days and in the mean time they say , that they will transfer the H1B. And later I can join again once I get the receipt. My concern now is , is this option practical , executable or logical? It would be great if you could throw some light on this. Waiting eagerly for your thoughts and replies. Thank you so much for your time and opinions. Regards.
  2. Hello, I am on F1-OPT currently , with my OPT being issued in March 2018. My employer filed my H1B petition in April 2018 and I got picked up for it. But in May 2018 , I got laid off . My employer decided to not to withdraw my application till 1st Oct and it is currently in process with USCIS. So , can you please let me know : 1. Is there any way that I can save my current H1B? 2. In the current scenario, my old employer is not going to take any action , so am I eligible for "H1B Transfer" with new employer? Thank you!
