my h1b expires in 2014, do I have a possibility to get a transfer to another job eventhough i have not worked with my original employer 1 year ago?
To be cap exempt, you must have held H-1B status within the last six years. Additionally, if you are in the US and have not worked for a year, you are out of status and will trigger a ten year bar when you leave.
Your employer needs to retain an experienced immigration lawyer to review all the facts, advise them, and handle the case. Your employer can find one through http://www.ailalawyer.com.
I am confused. IF your quesiton is whether you can change employer who would seek a new H1B petition on your behalf all in the USA and after you not having been working for a year, the answer is no. You have been out of status for a year. To change employer you would need to be in a valid H1B status.
