Important Update on Employment Authorization

Due to EAD production delays, USCIS announced that employees may use a Form I-797, Notice of Action, with a notice date from 12/1/19 to 8/20/20 informing approval of an Application for Employment Authorization (Form I-765) as a list C #7 document for Form I-9 compliance. Employees may do so until 12/1/20.

Employees who present a Form I-797 Notice of Action for new employment must also present their employer with an acceptable identity document. By December 1, 2020 employees will need to present their employers with new evidence of employment authorization.
