    Answered . As long as Employer A is still willing to offer you in good faith a full-time permanent job after your GC is approved then no reason the petition can't continue to pend. If you are not doing a concurrent H-1B with Employer B, then Employer A should withdraw their H Petition so their salary obligation to you will cease. As long as there is time left on Employer's A Petition they may legally continue to pay you for services rendered even concurrent with employer B's Petition.
