The work permit or work authorization is offered to many categories such as L2 visa holders, pending adjustment of status, Asylees, and lately the H4 visa holders. However recently USCIS has actually delayed the issuance of the work authorization card for no definite reasons.

Last week, a class action was started by three immigrants and two immigration service providers against U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) for unlawfully delaying the adjudication of their applications for employment authorization.

According to INA, interim EADs or work permits need to be issued if USCIS fails to adjudicate cases by a 90 days period. However, the department has constantly refused to issue the interim work permits although 90 days have passed. This is the reason the lawsuit is being filed. We hope the case will be settled and applicants of a work authorization will no longer be delayed.
