Immigration Issues/L1 to H1B

Question
Presently I'm on L1 visa with employer A. EmployerA also has applied for GC process, with I140 and I485 pending.
Can I apply for H1B with employer B ? Should I tell employerB about my GC process with employerA? If H1B gets approved with employerB, what happens to my GC process?


Answer
You can file for change of status from L1 to H1. If your I-485 is pending mor than 180 days, you can use the work cvard you get from I-485 to work for anyone and you may sustitute themas your employer for the I-485 as long as the job is similar and in the same geographic area.
