Question

I was on H1B for 4.9 years from 2008 to 2013. In 2016 I came back to US on L1A visa (5 years will be completed in June this year) My Employer is not planning to start my GC process. So, I have to explore options to move to other Employer. I want to know if I am eligible to claim my unused H1B period of 1.3 years now, which expired in 2013. Also will I be able to continue to work in US by switching my status from L1A to H1B or do I need to exit and reenter? Please advise any other factors to consider if this switch is possible.
