Are there any implications if I refuse to join an employer (A) after they receive H1B cap exempt petition approval? Do they automatically revoke petition once they find out that candidate is not interested in joining. Can they legally claim petition fee from me in that case (premium processing)?
Scenario 1- If I’m talking to company (B) for a job, do I need to legally tell them that another company (A) has also filed for cap exempt petition and they are waiting on approval or can I keep it a secret so they (B) are more interested in hiring me? Do they have any way of finding that out?? Is it legal?
Scenario 2- If A got cap exempt petition approval from USCIS but they are not giving a good job offer, can I approach B and still afford not telling B about A’s approval and ask them to file H1 petition.
Will B be required to buy me out from A in case A has got petition approval or A & B can get their own separate approval from USCIS without knowing about each other in any way? Legit?
Is it up to the employee to choose which company he wants to work with if both A & B have h1 approvals (lottery picked in 2015-h1 visa stamp valid till 2018 but petition has been revoked)
Any implications in terms of consideration by USCIS in future? Any judgement by them regarding the above?
