Hi all,

My wife's OPT is ending on May 3rd 2009. Her employer is planning to file the H-1B application on April 1st.

During the time her H-1B is pending and after her OPT ends can she still be working? If not, what is the whole purpose of this Cap-Gap rule? BTW, she does not belong to the SMET category (she has an economics bachelors degree)

Thanks -Nipster

Can someone please shed some light on this? I have heard different opinions on if its possible or not to work while H-1B is pending after OPT ends. So, can someone please clarify?

Thanks -Nipster
