If my work contract ends on July 10th, and the H1B visa expiration date is July 11th. When is the last day that I can stay?

Asked over 1 year ago - Chicago, IL

The H1B visa is with a school institution. I thought that at least there would be a week or a month to get out of the country without having any problems.
