You cant get it. H1 petition is being owned by your employer, you never OWN it. So, there is no legal way of getting a copy without your employer knowledge.

This is incorrect, you can always get H1B Copies via FOIA. Check this Article http://h1bsupport.com/blog/71/h1b-foia-request-to-obtain-copies-of-immigration-records

Read it correctly and fully.
On the same web page that you have referred it says

Will I get a copy of the I-797 Approval Notice?

No, USCIS will send you a copy of the I-129 petition with an Approval Stamp on the first page (if it was approved)

While the person asking this question is referring CLEARLY I-797(the notice of approval)
