Bloggings On Immigration Law And Policy

by Greg Siskind

Ombudsman Issues Recommendations on Employment Authorization Documents

More good work coming from the USCIS Ombudsman. In this case, it's new recommendations to address ongoing problems with USCIS issuing employment authorization documents in a timely manner and making it difficult to quickly resolve problems when delays occur. There report can be found here. Here's a quick run down of the major recommendations:

  1. Establish methods at local offices to facilitate immediate resolution;
  2. Establish a uniform processing time goal of 45 days for adjudication and 60 days for issuance of an EAD;
  3. Improve monitoring and ensure real-time visibility through an automated system for tracking processing times;
  4. Follow established internal procedures for issuing interim EADs in cases where background checks are pending; and
  5. Issue replacement EADs with validity dates beginning on the date the old EAD expires.
