Green Card Rules during Hiring [split topic; new title]

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey Friends,

 

I know this is not the right page for this but I see that many of you are worried about losing employment if you don't receive your i797 by the time your Green Card's expires. Here is what I found by doing some research.

 

" If you presented a valid permanent resident card when you were hired, your employer cannot request proof of the new one. The situation is reverse if you are applying for a new job. If you apply for a new job with an expired permanent resident card, then you must show your I-751 receipt. The employer can also ask to verify your status when your temporary proof expires. So, moral of the story is: try not to go job-hunting when your I-751 renewal is pending." - Weblink click here.

 

By law, your employer can't ask you to provide any further validation as long as you provided a valid green card at the time of your hiring. Here is a screenshot, also please follow this link for additional details on USCIS Website: https://www.uscis.gov/i-9-central/71-lawful-permanent-residents-lpr

 

I hope this helps you spend your Holidays in a better mood while USCIS takes their sweet time in sending out our receipt notices. Good Luck and Happy Holidays.
