About to re-enter the US for a new employer but won't have the physical 797 by then. Emp says I could try and submit a scanned copy and visa approval email. I think this is a horrible idea, thoughts?

I worked in assurance at Deloitte outside the US for 2 years. I then moved to the US and completed my masters in a year. Currently working at EY US but I was hoping to switch to Deloitte US if they will be willing to sponsor me on L1 visa. How likely will Deloitte sponsor and where do I start from? Any referrals? I have 2.5 years of OPT (including STEM) left.

Please help. Husband was in Canada (and still is) at the time his H1B was approved, so he received I797B instead of the usual I797A approval. Since I797B comes without I-94 attached at the bottom, his H1B status becomes valid only after he gets his visa stamped from home country and enters the US on H1B. Due to COVID, we don’t intend to make a trip to India anytime soon. Will his employer be able to start the PERM/I-140 process without him having H1B status and while he’s still working in Canada?
