Question Laid-off during Cap-Gap I-20

Hi,

I am on OPT Cap-Gap Extensions, initial OPT expried on May 31st '13. H1-B (received approval notice in April) supposed to start on October 1st '13. Though June, 11th I got laid-off by my current employer. I was in impression that I have 90 days to find a job.


Would you please let me know how much time I have to find another employer? And how to get H1-B transferred to new employer?

1. What happens after withdrawal of H1-B by employer A?
2. Can I find company B who can file H1-B petition for me?
3. Do I have a deadline to find a new job/employer?

I have done some research -->
