I-751 Pending Application and Employment

Asked over 1 year ago - San Jose, CA

I wanted to know with I-751 application pending and expired "Conditional Green Card", am i still authorized to work in the U.S. I heard USCIS will issue a receipt when I-751 is filed that includes a year extension period to the "Conditional Green Card". Do we know whether employers are familiar with the "receipt" that has the extension with an expired green card. I am in the process of changing jobs, just want to make sure i won't have an employment status related issue.
