I wish to inform you that as soon as you are terminated your status is revoked. Further your employer is having a duty to inform USCIS about termination. In this situation you may either have a new employer who can sponsor you or you may leave country and then re-enter USA after you have new employer.

Contrary to popular belief, there is no other grace period for terminated employees holding H-1B status. While USCIS has proposed a 60-day period grace period to seek new employment, that period remains only a proposal. Although there is no grace period, USCIS generally approves petitions to change from one employer to the next if the gap is 30 days or less. As an alternative, if you have an H-1B spouse, change to dependent H-4 status or if a college/university accepts you for a full-time program, change to F-1 student status. The last option you have is to receive the cost of your return transportation to your last country of residence abroad. If an H-1B employer terminates an H-1B worker, the employer must offer to pay for a flight to return to your home country/ last country of residence abroad. If you leave the employer on your own, this requirement does not apply.

It is better advised that you may consult with an Immigration Attorney who can give a proper guidance in this regard.
