District Court Issues Consent Order and Final Statement in Class Action Challenging Delay in Issuance of EADs

In case you missed it, the law firm Porter Wright Morris & Arthur LLP recently filed a lawsuit on behalf of its client and a class of 75,000 workers approved to work in the United States but awaiting production of their employment authorization document (EAD). The settlement includes benchmarks for the production of the EADs and provides a mechanism to allow workers to work legally until the EAD cards can be produced by allowing employees to use Form I-797, Notice of Action, with a Notice date on or after December 1, 2019, through and including August 20, 2020, informing an applicant of approval of a Form I-765 as a Form I-9 List C #7 document. The backlog in the issuance of EADs is expected to be eliminated by the end of September.
