What would you like to know?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
I was employed with Employer A and I have quit this job on Sep 30th. I was on H-1B status.
I am not working for any employer since Sep 30th.
I accepted a job offer a week back from Employer B. This employer has already started my LCA but not yet filed the petition with USCIS.
Today I received another job offer from Employer C. I would like to join Employer C.
Question - Should I ask Employer B to stop their processing or is it ok if I let both Employer B and C file a change of status petiton with USCIS?
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
To give you additional information, my previous Employer will notify USCIS about my employment termination 30 to 60 days after my last date (which was sep 30th).
At this point of time, given that I am no longer employed, is it ok if two employers file (one after the other) for "Change of status" petition?
Note that Employer B has filed my LCA a week ago. Employer C has not started the process. If Employer C files for "Change of Status" after Employer B, would that cause a problem?
