I am an F-1 visa holder and recently graduated from university. Having submitted my OPT application mid-March, I'm still waiting for my OPT application to be approved and for my EAD card to be delivered. My start date was supposed to be this week, but this delay in my case has disabled me to start working immediately. My employers are interested if there is any legal way I can start working while my OPT application is pending. As a contractor or working remotely...is it still possible? Could you advise?
