    After 60 days Grace period

    My H1b petition is good until 2021 but I'm getting laid off. My last official day for work with company was today. My grace period starts tomorrow. I have already started applying for jobs. I understand that I can start working for a new employer as soon as employer receives receipt for h1B petition delivery to USCIS. There are few different questions that are coming in my mind.

    1. If I find a job within grace period and start working based on the receipt and the actual H1B petition gets rejected later (after 60 days from now), Will I be out of status for the time after 60 days to the day new employer receives rejection of petition? How many days will I get to wrap up things here in USA?

    2. What will be the best course of action in the above mentioned situation if I want to come back to USA for work in future?

    Thanks for your time!
