Hi, I have started a full-time position January, 2019 with a pre-completion OPT which will be expired on May 17th. I have completed all degree requirements and applied for a post-completion OPT on Feb 22nd. It is still pending and I am not expecting it will be approved before May 17th. In this situation, Can I work after May 17th when waiting for the post-completion OPT? If not, can I take an unpaid leave while waiting for the post-completion OPT?
