EAD and job change

Recommended Posts

Dear forum members

I am a postdoc scientist (H1B valid until May 2012) involved in biomedical research. I applied for I 140 (EB1 EA) and it got approved within 2 months. Immediately after that I applied for I485 (which is current), fingerprinting done and hopefully I will get my EAD next month.

I want to make a transition to industry ASAP. My question is whether after getting EAD, can I join industry with out having industry worry about my visa status. I do not want to get into new H1B petition etc. Overall question is can I join the company solely on the basis of EAD while I485 is pending. I 140 was self petition.
