I am on L1 visa in US working for XYZ multinational company .Actually I had the H1B approval with ABC Company before coming to US from India but the H1B visa was not stamped.
I came to US on L1 through XYZ multinational company and ABC company submitted my amended H1B application (i129) and H4 application(I539) for me and my wife.We have got the receipt but the H1B is still not approved.
Now I have submitted my resignation to XYZ company by giving 2 weeks notice period.
Also yesterday I had a talk with my offshore manager from India regarding my resignation .He said that I am not a US employee as I am not getting US salary and I need to abide by the policies of XYZ multinational company India and have to serve 2 months notice period and comeback to India.
Actually I get Indian salary and per diem allowance in dollars per day from XYZ multinational company .
I will be highly grateful if you can answer these questions.
Can I leave the job on L1 in US and join ABC company on H1B which is still not approved (I have the receipt number).?
What strong steps XYZ multinational company can take to stop me to resign in US ? As per my knowledge I havent signed any bond with them.I may have signed some agreement.
What are chances that my H1 application will be rejected.?
