Is there any relaxation to the ‘same or similar’ stipulation when switching jobs using EAD? What is the implication of executive action for this stipulation?


There is nothing that has changed at this time. There is mention of additional job flexibility as part of the executive actions, but no specifics have been released. This type of change likely requires a regulation. As it stands, there is a fair amount of flexibility when using AC21 GC portability to change jobs. We have a number of articles on this topic on MurthyDotCom. (22.Dec.2014)
