Your current employer can definitely submit a new H1B petition if they choose. That is what is considered a transfer. The first petition does not affect your new one by the current employer.

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
