I have an EAD with my employment-based GC processing, can I work two jobs on the EAD?


Congratulations on reaching the stage when your priority date is current, allowing you to file the I-485 and obtain an EAD. The EAD provides unrestricted employment authorization. Hence, a person is allowed to do two (or more) jobs with the EAD. However, in order to obtain approval of the GC properly, there must continue to be a proper job offer either from the original GC sponsoring employer or, in the case of AC21 eligibility, through a new position that is in the same/similar job classification as the position set out in the PERM and I-140 petition.
