E-Verify released a reminder on Sept. 27, 2019, that certain employment authorization documents (EADs) issued by United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) to Temporary Protected Status (TPS) beneficiaries from Sudan, Nicaragua, Haiti, and El Salvador are automatically extended through Jan. 2, 2020. We reported the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) notice of their action to extend the TPS designation for these individuals earlier this year (See Temporary Protected Status Extended for Sudan, El Salvador, Haiti, and Nicaragua). The same DHS announcement promulgated the automatic EAD extension.

The chart below lists the expiration dates printed on the EADs that have been granted an extension:

2017 2018 2019
07/22/2017 01/05/2018 01/05/2019
11/02/2017 01/22/2018 04/02/2019
  03/09/2018 07/22/2019
  11/02/2018 09/09/2019

Employers should not reverify the I-9s for employees with these EADs until Jan. 3, 2020.
