Employment Authorization Document (EAD)
Last updated on Aug 21st, 2017
The Employment Authorization Document (EAD) is a card that shows certain noncitizens are permitted to work in the US. Eligible applicants for EAD’s include people granted temporary protected status, fiancé(e)s of US citizens, applicants for asylum, withholding of removal, or cancellation of removal, and people with final orders of removal who have been released under order of suspension. The grant of an EAD is discretionary unless the person is applying for adjustment of status and suspension or cancellation of removal, in which case, EADs are mandatorily given. The EAD is frequently called a “work permit.”
