    H1 approved and lay-off

    Hi everyone, I have questions about my STEP OPT, cap-gap and H1 status. My STEM OPT EAD is valid till June 12. My H1B visa was applied this year and it is approved. So my CAP GAP authorized date is Sep 30. But I was laid off on May 16. DSO told to find a job before June 12 to maintain my status. My questions are:- 1) If I get another job before June 12, will that help me maintain my status in cap-gap, even if they do not do the H1 transfer? 2) Can I start working in a temporary job before June 12 and keep looking for an employer who can file a H1B petition before Sep 30. Can I switch to a job in my Cap-gap (between June 12-Sep 30)? 2) Can another employer file a H1B petition, even if my H1B was revoked from my old employer? (Not sure if they revoked it or not) I am looking for my best options in my current situation. Thank you,
