The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) – the world’s largest HR membership organization devoted to human resource management – recently published an article online regarding employees with expired employment authorization documents (EADs). Buchanan Immigration attorney Yova A. Borovska was quoted, telling the source that, “Workers cannot be employed for pay if they cannot provide proper documents from List A-C for purposes of I-9.”

“If an individual’s employment authorization on file with their I-9 form is expired, they do not yet have the new EAD to present to the employer for verification, and they do not have any other documents from the I-9 acceptable documents list (A-C) … they must be taken off payroll in order for the employer to be I-9 compliant,” Borovska continues.

Borovska told the publication that some employers use caution and terminate individuals with expired EADs in all internal systems, while others may just take them off payroll.
