My Employer is asking for OPT Extension card photocopy but just today USCIS approved my application and said I will receive the card in next 30 days. Employer says, they will have to terminate me if I don't provide the extension card copy. Please help.
I agree. The employer must have a document satisfying I-9 or they will be in trouble for hiring you.

They will need to see the physical card. However, they cannot terminate you until the end of the 31st. Also, even though the approval notice says it will take 30 days, usually USCIS is actually sending work permits fairly quickly. I have sometimes seen them mailed the day of approval and received in a few days. I believe they are mailed from Kentucky.
