        Yes current employer should be E-Verified, There will be no problem. And also I want to suggest not to apply at California Service Center they are really slow in processing your application. Good Luck.!!!!

            If your first pay check issued after 3 months of initial opt start date there are chances of query in your case, me and my friends got employment history RFE as we had pay checks after 3 months of opt start date. Though it us not required to be paid job in opt these days USCIS asking for extra paper work for each thing, my best suggestion is to get a letter from each of your employer with start and end date of your employment and its better if you can get it notarized. I don't want to scare you but its the best safe way before you get in to RFE.
            If you have problem with your previous employers since i had issue with my previous employer with personal experience, get notarized reference letter from previous employer colleagues, thats what my attorney suggested. Good luck! Wish you dont fall in to this RFE thing, its a big headache. If you get RFE go with attorney.
