H1B Visa on changing jobs:
Hi all, I am looking to change jobs currently. My new employer has filed my H1B transfer already and I have the uscis receipt number. Does it imply I can now start working at the new place? Or do I need to wait for transfer approval?
If I do start now just with the receipt number, what is the risk I need to be mindful of?

You can start working in receipt number though its not suggested option because if anything goes wrong with h1 transfer you will be in trouble. Always better to wait till approval.

Does BAL sends an E-mail after H1B transfer petition is approved?
My petition case status was changed to approved 2 days ago as per USCIS website.
Still there is no word from attorneys regarding approval(as it was premium processing, they should have received an E-mail).
Attorney/paralegal not responding to E-mail as well.

I don't imagine they'd be able get a driving licence and survive for long. I'm just baffled by the sheer number of cab drivers who can't speak fluent English, but seem to have cracked the immigration hurdles we are not able to.
