No, quite the opposite.  Per process document [1] Invited Expert  
status should not be granted to an individual who is an employee of a  
W3C Member.

If you are an employee of a W3C Member then you need to be nominated  
to the Social Web Incubator Group by the representative of your  
company at W3C (namely the Advisory Committee Representative).  If you  
are not aware who is the AC Rep, please let me know and I will let you  
know.
