Hi All, I need some guidance for my questions regarding OPT employment.

I am on F1 OPT. My OPT EAD has expired. But, I have already applied for STEM OPT extension at USCIS before expiry date. So, now I get an automatic 180 days of work authorizarion, until my STEM OPT extension is approved by USCIS.

My question is: Can I change employer this time before my OPT extension is approved by USCIS as its still processing at USCIS, keeping in mind my 12-months initial OPT has already expired? Please suggest.
