Employers are reminded to “auto extend” the work authorization of eligible nationals by recording the necessary information on their Form I-9s. In the coming weeks, employment authorization documents (EAD)s for a number of employees from countries designated with Temporary Protected Status (TPS) are due to expire. Two countries with upcoming expiration dates in need of auto-extending are El Salvador (current expiration: March 9 or 10, 2015) and Syria (current expiration: April 1, 2015).

An employee’s work authorization date must be updated on the Form I-9 prior to the expiration of employment authorization. Having a system in place to ensure these expirations are tracked and identified can minimize an employer’s liability significantly.
