I am currently working on H1B visa through the consulting company who sponsored my visa.
And I applied for Green card through my husband last year which got approved and i received the card yesterday. Am i no longer on H1B? What do i inform my sponsor company and will i still be able to continue to work through them?I want to know when does my status change to Permanent resident. Is it when i inform my sponsor and when they inform USCIS?
Also i no longer need a sponsor, but i have a 2 week notice period with the sponsor. Now that i have Green card, will i still have to abide my the 2 week notice period or can i start working for my end client immediately?
Your current status is permanent resident. You need to give the HQ office a copy of your green card and they will know what to do. And yes, since you no longer need a sponsor you can switch jobs if you'd like at any time.
It joins the better world, your H1B does, and you stay in this one in your LPR status.

If your green card petition was approved you are now considered a lawful permanent resident. You are authorized to work and travel with your green card.
