The employer needs to get HR to fix this. You can't do much there.

I think your Annul Income should be over what was specified in your LCA. Pay your taxes correctly and you should be good as long as your pay is not below LCA amount

i dont understand running pay checks on opt ..

does it mean he did not pay your social security and medicare tax ..

or does it mean he did not do rehiring process ( i-9 , w4 ... )..

those are your employer responsibilities and he is in trouble for not doing them ..

why would your employer pay you if you weren't working in march? if you were working in march then you violated your own status.

regardless nothing will probably happen unless USCIS decides to audit you.

Are you sure you are on H1b, a specialty occupation visa status?

See an attorney. Cap gap did not apply since OPT-EXT expired in March before H1B was filed.
