Dear Sophie: Does an employee have to stop working until they receive their EAD?

Dear Sophie,

One of our employees is a H-4 visa holder and has an Employment Authorization Document. He has not renewed his EAD for five months. It will expire next month. Is there a way to speed up this process? Is he required to stop working if he doesn’t get his new EAD card before his current one expires?

We are concerned about another employee who has an L-2 visa and an EAD that is due to expire in the early part of next year, because it takes so long to get EAD card.

The H-4 visa worker also wants to visit his Indian family because it has been three years since he last visited. After four weeks, will he and his family be allowed to return to the U.S.?
