Your question appears to be a combination of both immigration law and employment law. Immigration law requires the U.S. employer to pay some of the H-1b filing fees. You may wish to have your contract reviewed by a U.S. employment law attorney to fully understand your options. The contract may specify the state law that controls disputes relating to the contract. You should consult with an employment attorney in that state. Good Luck.
