Additional work on Green card

Recommended Posts


I got my green card under the EB1b category in October 2016, which was sponsored by my employer. I am still working with the same employer as a professor in a university. 

Is it possible to work additionally for an unrelated field (e.g. drive an uber, work at an electronic store, etc.) while still continuing to work as a professor at my current job. Is it going to affect my path to citizenship if I work additionally in an unrelated field. 

Please let me know the rules/thoughts.

You can work in a side job, if your employer allows it.

Be aware that an Uber driver makes less than minimum wage, after all the gas, car insurance, and car upkeep are considered...

Thanks. Why will the employer need to know about this job?

A lot of employment contracts have clauses that allow side jobs only when the employer approves them.

One reason for that is that they don't want people to work for a competitor on the side. They also want people to direct their full attention to their job.
