L1A and EB1

Which companies are willing to send employees to foreign offices once their visas are expired, in order to bring them back on L1A so that an EB1 petition can be filed for a quick Green card? Or is it more driven by the employee himself in any case?

      Not true! You need sponsorship for both EB1B and C categories. Even for EB1A you should show that you are coming to the US to work in your area of expertise, which typically means an offer .

    So that you get the green card and leave the company? Why would they do that :)

      Why would I leave a company if I am happy there? Because greed, right? Well, that’s a different beast and can infest you even when you don’t have a GC. Plus, if the company is worried about it, it can set up a contract which has monetary penalties when broken.

      That happens in India, not here. It's obviously illegal! Employment is at will.

      I'm pretty sure everyone leaves once they get the GC

      It happens even here. Big companies who spend money on GC or even joining bonus can have you sign where if you leave within, say, 2 years, you will have to pay the expenses back. Not uncommon at all, maybe uncommon in the Silicon Valley.
