H-1 and Out of Status

My project is going to end soon and my employer does not know if he will have another client with a project for me. How long do I have to find a new employer before I am out of status? What should I do if my current employer withdraws my H-1B?

ANSWER: 

There is no grace period when you are laid off. You will be out of status from the date your current employment ends. It is advisable to apply for a change of status to, for example, B1/B2, F-1, or H-4.
