  • RFE for Employment history

    Hello All,

    Thanks in advance for spending your time to help me. My start date on OPT is July 23, 2013. I started working as voluntary research intern under a professor in my department from September 30th till February 9th and after which I got a job in an E-verified company with starting date February 10. I applied for STEM extension and received an RFE requesting more documents about employment history. I have quoted it.

    " Please provide your complete employment history (including start and end dates) and proof of employment for your initial grant of OPT. Evidence of employment may include but is not limited to

    1) Letter(s) from employers establishing job title, duties, location. payrate and number of hours worked per week.

    2) Copies of pay stubs

    3)Any other documentation you have to verify your employment history timeline.

    If you worked for an employment agency or consultancy, you must provide evidence of the jobs you worked on and dates worked. Additionally, if you worked remotely (telework, assigned to a client etc), please notate such in your employment history. "

    So that's what my RFE letter states. My question is I have pay stubs for my current job but I don't have any pay stub for my work under professor. However I have a letter from him stating that I worked as "Voluntary research intern" under him in his lab from 09/30/2013 to 02/09/2014 for atleast 20 hours/week. I was wondering if this letter will work? Will I be facing any problem?

    Thanks again.

        What I heard from my DSO is you should work full time while on OPT even if it is paid or unpaid make that voluntary work as 40 hrs a week...otherwise u should be good... I recommend you to confirm with your DSO or attorney....
