F-1 OPT Unpaid Employment Acceptable

We have won a series of cases where USCIS had earlier held that unpaid employment under OPT was legally unacceptable to maintain status.  We have argued that such holding is contrary to all law, policy and precedence.  Students are NOT required to engage in PAID employment.  All these cases were won after we filed our briefs pursuant to Motions to Reopen (MTR).
