You can answer this kind of question yourself: 

1. Look at the help to see what options are documented. 

2. Look at the code using -viewsource- to see if any options are
undocumented.

My current working paper compares the discrimination between the private
and public sectors. I am using the Stata command 'movestay' developed  
by Lokshin and Sajaia. I would like to know whether it is possible to  
use control variables which are not present in the probit equation of  
sector choice with this stata command.

ex:
lnw_1i = beta_1 (age age2 reg contract nbemployees) + u_1i
lnw_2i = beta_2 (age age2 reg contract nbemployees) + u_2i
I= delta(lnw_1i - lnw2i) + gamma(age age2 reg maritalstatus  
csp_parents) + mu_i

where the type of contract and the number of employees in the firm do  
not enter in the probability of working in a particular sector. Is  
there an option to avoid adding these variables to the estimation of I  
and getting the value of delta ?
