I am on STEM OPT extension which expires Aug 30, 2014. I was previously approved for H1B in 2012 but never used it since i lost the job. So i was back to OPT. Now my current employer is filing H1-B which will be CAP exempt since I previously met the CAP once.
My question is, Should my employer file for H1-B and send it USCIS on Apr 1 like regular CAP subject H1-B's or Can they file in May 2014 since my OPT expires in Aug 30, 2014? Can my employer buy some time until May or send all the documentation on Apr 1 ? Please help me. Thank you so much
