I agree with Att. Segal, you need to stop working for L1 company by October 1 as you will be in H1b status for company B on that date.


You need to start working for the H1 employer on Oct 1.

You cannot continue to work in L-1 status from October 1 onwards as COS is approved and you are required to maintain H-1B status by joining your H-1B employer.
