I am an intern. I can work for 40 hours per week. I asked my manager to work for 10hours for 4 days rather than 8hours for 5 days. In my paycheck I received overtime pay for the hours that are above 8 hours per day. Will it create a problem to my f1 visa status?
I am following the visa rules and not working more than 40hours per week.
Any information on this issue ?

      Not some rando anonymous microsoft employees. Not even trying to be rude here you should really bring up your concerns with your manager just to be safe

      My manager don’t know much about the visa rules and regulations. I asked my hr the same, she said anything above 8hours is counted for overtime. But she hasn’t got any information about visa issues related to that issue.

      The HR Manager doesn’t know much then. Anything above 40 hours in 1 week, is considered overtime. 4x 10’s will be fine, as long as it is ok with your manager and Company Policy. It will not affect your visa status to do it that way.

      But defiantly make certain you see it in writing and know your regulations that govern your f1 visa. I would look at DSHS and read for yourself before making any changes to your schedule.

      In CA anything over 8 hours in a day is counted as over time also.

      My manager is okay to pay, because he never cares about money. Only thing he cares about is work and getting things done by time.

    Don't worry. It won't affect your visa status at all. You are a lucky that you have a great very nice manager who doesn't mind to pay overtime. Get the FTE under that manager and your future will be good. No politics at all:)

    Unfortunately your manager won't be a manager for very long since he's allowing OT to be paid out for no gain to the company. Basically this amounts to poor business sense. Nice guy, but his managers will be asking there is OT for no reason

      Ohhh that’s a good thing. I don’t want my manager get blamed because of me. I will talk to him about this issue in detail again. My main concern about my visa status and will it have any effect on my visa status.

    Gone through the same thing. Worried as hell. Nothing happened.

    I think you are fine as long as your school doesn’t have a problem with it.
