I hope this will be a dumb question, but my K-1 wife seems to think it isn't.

 

We have filed for the AOS including work permit in February. My wife wants to get a job as a Certified Nursing Assistant before getting the work visa. She has found two places that would hire her without the work visa. I'm of the opinion that working for them would harm her chances of getting her Green Card if found out. I'm of the opinion that if they found out (and I would think they would since she would be paid with her SSN and her earnings would be reported to the IRS), that it would create serious problems getting her Green Card. What is your opinion?

Thanks.

With a K1 she is not authorised to work until she obtains her EAD.

If she gets a job offer she can expedite the EAD but only after she has done biometrics.

Until she has her EAD in hand.

Not until she has the physical EAD card in her hand to present to her employer(s). But if a place is willing to hire someone without the proper documentation, I'd be wary of becoming their employee.

Right,   When the expedite request is approved and the EAD is issued.

If your wife isn't willing to trust the statements of random people on the internet, maybe she'll trust a random site on the internet:

Or the official word:
https://www.uscis.gov/working-in-the-united-states/information-for-employers-and-employees/employer-information/employment-authorization

Until she has her greencard (proving her LPR status), she needs the EAD in order to work.

Patience......patience.
