The U.S. Department of Justice’s Office of Special Counsel (OSC) has launched an updated educational video reminding employers that Salvadorans with Temporary Protected Status (TPS) may continue working beyond the Sept. 9, 2016, expiration date of their employment authorization documents. In this video, OSC also cautions employers that requesting additional work-authorization documents from these workers may violate anti-discrimination law.

USCIS has automatically extended the validity of employment authorization documents issued under the last extension/designation of TPS El Salvador for an additional 6 months, through March 9, 2017. If you have a TPS El Salvador EAD with an original expiration date of September 9, 2016, you are covered by this automatic extension and may continue to work. For more information on TPS eligibility requirements, what to file, and step by step instructions go to http://www.uscis.gov/tps.
