My employer filed an H1B petition for me before my OPT expired. Will cap-gap allow me to continue working until October 1st, even if the petition is rejected?


No. Cap-gap does not go all the way to October 1st if the H1B petition is rejected. There are several key dates for cap-gap that depend upon whether the case is selected and, then, whether it is approved or not. We have that exact information on MurthyDotCom. (06.Apr.2015)
