EAD based on Past Employer 485 filing

Recommended Posts


I am working with current employer from July 2019 on H1b status.

My previous employer filed 485 for me on 23rd October, 2020 based on future employment basis and I have received EAD on 13th July, 2021 as well as my action date(priority date) is not current yet.

Meanwhile my current employer had to file my H1b extension and it got approved on 29th September, 2021 and validity starts from 5th December, 2021. FYI, This extension is filed after I received EAD.

Is it legally valid, if I would like to join with completely different employer by using EAD? if it is valid then do I need to report back to original employer who filed my 485 when I receive GC in future?
