Job change after family based green card ?

4 posts in this topic

My friend just got her green-card via AOS through marriage. She was previously working on her H1B visa, and now wants to change jobs. I can't find any information on if she needs to inform the new employer about her green card status, or if she can just apply for the job.

Any advice would be appreciated. Please let me know if you need anymore details.

If she applies for a job, she first has to verbally state that she is "authorized to work in the United States. It's none of the prospective employer's business if that's the case because she's a US citizen, a non-citizen national, a resident, or a non-resident authorized to work, whether with an EAD or work visa. This rule is in place to prevent discrimination.

Once she's been hired, she has to fill out form I-9 and provide proof that she is authorized to work. On that form she will have to state under which of the 4 categories she falls and provide proof to that effect, based on the documents accepted in three lists pertaining to identity and authorization to work.


There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism. When I refer to hyphenated Americans, I do not refer to naturalized Americans. Some of the very best Americans I have ever known were naturalized Americans, Americans born abroad. But a hyphenated American is not an American at all . . . . The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, of preventing all possibility of its continuing to be a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities, an intricate knot of German-Americans, Irish-Americans, English-Americans, French-Americans, Scandinavian-Americans or Italian-Americans, each preserving its separate nationality, each at heart feeling more sympathy with Europeans of that nationality, than with the other citizens of the American Republic . . . . There is no such thing as a hyphenated American who is a good American. The only man who is a good American is the man who is an American and nothing else.

Thanks JustBob. When you say she should verbally state that "she is authorized to work in the US", should she tell this to the HR person when she meets her in person, or over the phone? Or any thoughts on how / when she should make that statement?

Thanks for the super quick reply on the other question, and i think you've given plenty of help if you dont' know the answer to my other question.

I meant this rather casually. When applying for a job (depending on what kind of job it is), it is possible, just possible, that the HR person will ask her if she's authorized to work. Usually applicants for any job have to fill out an application where exactly this question is asked: Are you authorized to work in the United States?"

They don't ask whether or not she's a citizen or resident; they just want to cover their behinds and not waste time on people who they can't hire anyway.
