Meanwhile I have got a new position with company B and company B is willing to sponsor my Visa as well as my Green Card. What do i need in order to retain my priority date. I think I can port my priority date to the PERM process of company B.
Also let me know what documents do I need to have with me once I join the new company so that when I file for labor from company B I can retain my priority date as OCT 2009.

I would be happy if somebody can help me with your valuable inputs on this regard.
Sorry to hear about your position.

First and foremost is maintain your legal status. Till when is your H1B valid? Ask company B to file for H1B immediately.

Yes, Copy of approved I-140 is very important.
You will have to start all over with the labor process once again with company B. This is in case you have not applied for your I-485 yet. The labor process starting from PWD to approval should take approx 4 to 6 months. Once labor is approved then obtaining I-140 from date of filing for it will take approx 4 months. This is the time you will need your copy of old approved I-140 for "Porting the date"

Good luck!
