Thread: Does non-paid internship count as employment under OPT?

  1. #21
    Yes. Even voluntary work does.

  2. #22
    Yes I think it does

    I think it does. The goal of OPT is to get practical training regardless of whether you are getting paid or not.

    I just realized that my internship work agreement says that the relationship of both parties is that of independent contractors not employer/employee...does it matter? FYI, I haven't signed that agreement yet.

    "Independent Contractor" means u will not work regularly as an employee, but will work as and when needed by the employer. do u know if its a full (40 hrs) or part time(20 hrs)? confirm exactly how many hours the client wants u to work.

    A well-installed external car antenna usually fixes the problem. And if you’re in a rural area that’s on the periphery of the GSM coverage range, or even in a building that tends to block GSM signals, there are some novel antenna solutions available.*For More visit.....

    okkey fair enough , however does it happen like this if ur employer was non e-verified , and employment was volunteer unpaid employment , u get denied STEM extension ?
