    Answered . Make sure you have a valid L-1B and that you have tim left for extension of teh status in the future if you prefer to work for employer A on an L-1B status.

    You can ask Employer B to withdraw the LCA and send a letter withdrawing the H-1B petition, along with proof that the LCA has been withdrawn and the H-1B receipt so that USCIS can put these together.
