EXECUTIVE ACTION EXPANDS THE USE OF THE EAD

MU's Maria Schneider authored the Greater Cincinnati Human Resources Association's January Guest Blog opinion. Maria's piece discusses President Obama's recent Executive Action on Immigration and the expansion of the use of the Employment Authorization Document.


President Obama recently announced the Immigration Accountability Executive Actions (IAEA), a series of changes to immigration policy. At this time, only summary policies have been released; over the next few months, more details will emerge.  The earliest of these changes will take effect in the first quarter of 2015.  

The following four parts of the IAEA allow individuals to obtain work authorization in the form of an Employment Authorization Document (EAD)(read more on the GCHRA website).
