I have situation where my current employer mistakenly got my H1B petition cancelled while I was working for them in US. I am still in US. The situation is that earlier I had to join my current employer on Dec 2015 but due to visa transfer not happening on time, my joining date got pushed to Jan 2016 and I joined in Jan 2016. But some how due to miscommunication the off boarding team didnt get notice that my joining date has been pushed to Jan and they sent a request to USCIS to cancel my petition and it had been approved also. So, now my employer said that they are going to file for my h1b now under premium category. Bug I am worried now as right now I am not sure of my status in US and on h1b there should not be any gap in employment. Not sure what will happen.
Please respond to my query if anyone knows what should be done and can there be any bad consequences because of this situation? What options do I have?
