H1 status after leaving job and new company is not transferring H1


Recommended Posts

Dear Sir,


I work for an Indian MNC for an American client. This year my company initiated my H1 and the petition got through lottery and is now approved. The stamping is not done yet. Meanwhile, my client has asked my company to shift me to their payroll to which my company has agreed.


My problem is the client want me to work from their India office and is not willing to transfer my H1 petition. On the other hand my company has told me that they not have any openings for me as of now and as per their policy, once I'll leave them they'll cancel my H1.


My query is if I join the client for now and lets say after a year I shift to another company, will that company, if willing, can file a cap-exempt petition using my current approved petition?
