Temporary Protected Status or Deferred Enforced Departure
 
The United States Government or the President of the United States from time to time designate certain foreign nationals as “protected” in that they are given the opportunity to remain in the United States, work in the United States, and travel in and out of the United States on a temporary basis.  This “protected” status is usually given in cases of ongoing armed conflict, an environmental or other extraordinary circumstances.

You are required to have employment authorization to work in the United States. If you have been given employment authorization and have not completed your petition, your emploment authorization could have expired.  Employers are under governmental scrutiny and if your employment status is not current when they check, you may lose your job.  Contact us if you are not sure or if you would like to apply for or renew your employment authorization.
