I’m not sure if rules have changed now but when I got an RFE last year, I wasn’t allowed to work past September 30th (was put on Unpaid LOA) since H-1B FY starts on October 1st. Also, I was advised against travel outside the US.
When did you respond to the RFE? I got an approval about 3 weeks after the response was filed.
Good luck, OP! Work closely with the immigration team. They were super helpful in my case.

OP - I have been hearing conflicting things from DSO and the immigration team. DSO says a pending H1 application does not allow to legally stay in the US. The immigration team was talking about some OPT grace period.Yet to find out more.

RFE filed on Aug 8

My rfe response was filed on Aug 15. Yet to hear back from USCIS. I am on STEM OPT that expires Dec 31 this year. Would I be able to legally stay and work in the US if I don't hear back by Dec 31?

EY1- My understanding is not since you loose your legal status to continue to be on US soil. Have you contacted the immigration team at your firm?

Sorry guys I forgot to add to my comment above that since my STEM OPT expired in July 2017 and my H-1B approval wasn’t received until September 30,2017, I was asked to go on unpaid LOA.

EY1, to your question - you can stay in the US since you’ve a petition in progress but you cannot work beyond the expiration of your STEM OPT. Work with your immigration team.

EY 1- good luck! Hope you have a decision soon and don’t have to deal with this.
