Thread: Was I on H1B or OPT? Please help.

  1. #1
    I had filed for H1 in a consulting firm in December 2004. My OPT was to expire on March 30, 2005. I received H1 approval in February 2005.

    However, uptil until May, my employer did not pay me any money, as I was not able to get any project during that time.

    I know there is about 2 months grace-period after expiration of OPT, which in my case would be May 30, 2005.

    My question is: Since my employer did not pay me before May 30, 2005, WOULD I BE CONSIDERED ON MY OPT OR H1?

    Please help.
