  1. If you want to continue with employer A. Ask employer A to file another petition for you as L or if you receive approval for H-1B ak employer a to file H-1B petition for you.

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Employer B to withdraw the LCA and send a letter withdrawing the H-1B petition, along with proof that the LCA has been withdrawn and the H-1B receipt so that USCIS can put these together.
