The I-140 EAD Final rule has been released on Friday, November 18, 2016 and was published in the Federal Register. The final rule is effective from January 17, 2017.
A few highlights of the final rule include the following:
The rule to allow certain I-140 beneficiaries to apply for employment authorization documents (EADs) is extremely restrictive;
The federal registry states workers may retain priority dates and transfer those dates to new and subsequently approved form I-140 petitions, except when the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) revokes approval of the petition for: material error, fraud or willful misrepresentation of a material fact, or revocation or invalidation of the labor certification accompanying the petition.
The final rule also provides for 10-day nonimmigrant grace period.
