My H1B 2018 petition was selected towards the cap. However upon review it has been rejected as it was not filed properly with the below reason.

'Your form I-129 petition subject to FY 18 cap has an employment date earlier than 10/01/2017.

In this case, can my attorney resubmit the petition now? Or Resubmitting doesn't work as the cap is already over?

Nope. That H1 is gone. a resubmit would only be possible if the quota is still open, which it isn't.

Next time, find a better employer, who hires a better lawyer. This stuff is really really basic, and a lawyer (or probably paralegal) who misses that is, quite frankly, incompetent.
