Can someone continue working up to 30 days after an EAD card has expired?

Asked about 1 year ago - Santa Fe, NM

My brothers EAD card will be expiring soon. He renewed it but has not received the card in the mail. His employer is asking for him to bring the new EAD card. We do not think it will arrive on time before it expires. Someone told us that he could continue working up to 30 days after the Employement Authorization Card has expired.

    In the future tell him to file 100 days in advance, that way he won't be forced to take an unpaid leave of absence ... which is what he must do now.
