Immigration Issues/H1b Transfer



My Current Employer A has started my H1-B transfer under normal processing. I have resigned and joined my employer on getting  H1-B transfer receipt notice.

In case H1-B transfer started by Employer A is rejected :-
1. Can I initiate fresh H1-B transfer by joining other employer?
2. What will be my status in case H1-B transfer rejects?
3. How long can I stay with in country? Is there any interim grace period where I can search job and go for fresh transfer.

Please advice, as I am bit tensed.

1) Yes,
2) For a reasonable justified period you would be fine,
3) For a reasonable justified period of time depending on your circumstances. "Reasonable Period" has not been quantified - usually it is 30 days or more if justified.

Best wishes,
