I agree with attorney Pollak. You need to tell you employer to get an immigration attorney on board. There are plenty in LA. If they already have one, you may want to start with one. You do need to file an amendment to your H1B. Receipt will be sufficient.

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.
J Charles Ferrari Eng & Nishimura 213.622.2255 The statement above is general in nature and does not constitute legal advice, as not all the facts are known. You should retain an attorney to review all the facts specific to your case in order to receive advise specific to your case. The statement above does not create an attorney/client relationship. Answers on Avvo can only be general ones, as specific answers would require knowledge of all the facts. As such, they may or may not apply to the question.
I agree with my colleagues. You should not be worrying about this issue at all. The company should consult with an immigration attorney regarding the steps to be taken to ensure compliance with regulations. This is not your job; especially inquiring about costs associated with these filings as the employer is required to pay for them.
