          this is what my advisor said....You can volunteer for a company for 20 hours a week and it meets the employment requirement, which means you do not count those days toward the 120 days allowed

            During the initial 12 months period of OPT, you can work unpaid in case stem. You can remain un employed for 90 days during intial period and 60 days in between.

                This is not working now.... volunteering or unpaid internship is also counted towards the 90/120 days only.. you better ask your employer to run your payroll . if not possible you can try showing that period as unpaid vacation which doesnt count towards the 90/120 days.
