  • Running Payroll OPT STEM

    Hi DesiOPT,

    Thank you for all the help you guys provide in clearing a lot of doubts for us OPT Students. I have one question. The thing is I am on OPT STEM Extension and I got my EAD Card. (I have enrolled in an E-Verified desi consulting company). The issue is, I am still looking for a proper full-time job. So, there is no payroll as such yet. I understand it is a must for H1-B visa to run payroll properly. Is it necessary to run payroll for OPT STEM? Kindly let me know guys. Also thanks to Chandu Tummala for clearing my previous question.

      Your question is confusing. Are you working? Is the company paying you? In order to be considered employed, you must be getting paid, whether they pay you as an employee (W-2) or as a contractor (1099) – it doesn’t matter as both types of “employment” are allowed for STEM OPT holders. Check out this resource: http://www.ice.gov/doclib/sevis/pdf/...nce_042010.pdf. Specifically, pages 18-19.

                  it should be paid....You can be jobless for 120 days cumulative which includes 90days limit of initial opt....it's not a big deal for consultanices to run payroll,..try to get as early as possible
