Hi ranchers,
Please help me, as I do not know what to do ! I'm at offshore(India) I am planning to quit my company soon, and Im gonna ask for onsite if my employer ask me why I am quitting. Problem is, I have a H1B visa with this employer. What if the employer, cancels my H1B when I say that I want to quit, instead of asking me the reason for quitting, and asks me to leave the company.

What I thought was, I could secretly attend interviews at companies, transfer my H1B to their company, and then quit. But then, even if I wanted to stay, if my current employer gives me onsite(then I can't stay, since my H1 is already transferred !!) :-(.

What should I do, I want onsite or I want a hike.

AFAIK You cannot get it transferred here. Inorder to get it transferred, you must go to US on H1B with your current employer.

If he's a beneficiary of an H-1B petition but not in H-1 status (since he is not in the United States), he is still cap-exempt and a new employer could file a new H-1B on his behalf.

Cheers!

Oh k, and what if I recieved my H1B visa when in company 'X' and then shift to company 'Y' without going to the US. Can company 'Y' file a new H1 for me ?
