Hi! My EAD expired last week - I submitted my renewal applications back in October but has not been approved yet. From my understanding I can not work until I get the approval. My HR company think/have submitted my receipt number from the form I got notifying me USCIS had received the application and have given me the all clear to continue to work as this went through in their system. From what I can see though this new rule where a receipt number from a pending case can only be used to grant a 180 day extension only if you fall under certain categories. The e3D not being one of these. I've tried to explain this but they still think I am ok to work. Don't get me wrong I do / need to be working but I also don't want to get in trouble or jeopardize my pending application. What would happen if I did just continue to work until my new EAD card came - my work/HR company seem to think entering that receipt number gave it the all clear. Thank you in advance.
