I am currently working in the US on an L1b Visa. My current employer has filed for my Change of status H1b this year. I want to change my employer and have some questions regarding the same:
1) If I resign from my current company before Oct 1st while on L1b, Can I continue to stay in the US without working for any employer until Oct 1st and then start working for a new employer starting Oct 1st? Is there any grace period of stay in the US while on L1b and not being employed? If yes then how long?
2) If the above answer is 'No', then is there any other way I can continue to stay in the US until Oct 1st or do I have to go back to my home country, get the new H1b visa stamped and re-enter?
