Immigration Issues/H1 application


I have a L1 stamped on 30 Oct 2007.I am currently in India. Now i am applying for H1 through a US consultant. What i want to know is does my current employer who issued my L1 will get to know that i am applying for H1, also if my H1 application gets through lottery, to get it stamped should i come to India if by that time my current employer sends me to US?Will my existing L1 application will be cancelled once i receive H1?  

Your L employer will not know what you have filed.  There is no cancellation of the L by virtue of your filing an H.  However if you enter on H then you are on H status.  Likewise if you enter on L you will be considered on L status.
Good Luck
