Default regarding temporary permit H1b visa but no work given

Attorney pls help me. I've been here in the US since january, i got approved with my H1b october 2008 through temporary permit even without license (physical Therapist) for the past 7 months i've been staying with a relative in a diffrent state with no work coz initially the employers pln is for me to work through temporary permit and then when my visa was approved they change their plan and asked me to pass my stateboard exam first. But sadly i failed three times. But the thing is, I was not really able to focus on my exam coz im satying with a relative that requires me to live along with them help with chores so no definite time for review, that may cause my failed exams. My previous employer bought me a plane ticket going back to my country. My questions are:
1. Can i file a complaint with DOL/USCIS because i was not able to work? if possible, how?
2. Is there a way I can transfer my H1b visa with other employer without the license and paystubs?
But my real concernis the money, emotion and time wasted because I was not able to work which supposedly I should, Btw i paid for my plane ticket coming here because they said they gonna reimburse even my 3 failed exams i paid for it. Please help me on the query.Thank you very much

Default Consult an attorney ASAP

I cannot provide specific answers to your two questions, but based on the details provided you have been in the U.S. for the last seven to nine months in violation of your H-1B status. You should immediately consult an attorney - in real life, not via online forums.

If you are allowed to work on a temp license then he should have hired you, if the law does not allow you to work then he obviously cannot hire you and you should have left the country and he should have canceled your H-1. Again if your temp license allows you to work as a PT then you can file for a transfer and the USCIS may deny or if you are lucky approve on a discretionary basis if you write an affidavit informing them of why you don't have paystubs, The same goes with filing a complaint. Your case is complicated, some avenues can open up, you need to consult an attorney in person or over the phone to discuss your case.

Default tnx

yes...actually my I94 stamped is October 10, my visa is expiring september 30. They booked a ticket sept 10 but I moved it to sept 20. What I want to happen now is to find an employer who would continue my H1b visa, my previous employer sent the termination at USCIS/ INS already. I really dont want to lose my H1b visa, but I can take the exam only on March next year so if there's a way they will give me temporary permit it will not be enough till the time i will take my exam.

There isn't a lot of information in your post about your self.. Here is the general information on what is needed and use it if applicable.

All states in US require Physical therapists to get license to practice in the state in which they take the certification. Requirements are different in each state for the license, so you will need to check the license requirements for the state in which you would like to get license. For license, you need to have done course work equivalent to bachelors / Masters degree in physical therapy in the US.

You cannot work / employer cannot have you consult the patients without a license in particular state on temporary permit as you mentioned in the post.. As other poster mentioned, your status is a big question.
