I work as a faculty in a university in USA. My H1B was filed by my university, and was approved in last October 2015.

As I recently interviewed a company, the new employer wanted to know if my H1B is transferable (to the new industry employer).

How do I know this? Does my H1B approval notice has any code to tell me this? If not, what exactly should I ask to my lawyer (who processed my H1B) to learn this?

Thanks in advance!

That's how. There was no quota in October 2015 available, i.e.: your H1b wasn't subject to quota. You cannot transfer non-quota H1b to a quota H1b.

This is also part of the H1b paperwork (shows as cap-exempt or something like that in the documents).
