The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has released a fact sheet related to the automatic extension of certain employment authorization documents (EADs) described in the recent regulation on high-skilled workers. The fact sheet clarifies, “Employees with a timely filed EAD application that is still pending may qualify for the 180-day automatic extension, even if that application was filed prior to the effective date of this rule (Jan. 17, 2017).”
See the earlier post explaining the new rules in details here.
