NewsFlash! Proposed I-140 EAD Rule Clears OMB

On December 22, 2015, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) concluded its review of a rule proposed by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) that would “allow certain approved immigrant petition for alien worker (form I-140) beneficiaries to obtain work authorization…” The rule would also “clarify the meaning of portable work authorization, and remove unnecessary restrictions on the ability to change jobs or progress in careers, as well as provide relief to workers facing lengthy adjustment delays.”

While no details have yet been made available, it is expected that the proposed rule will soon be published in the Federal Register.
