The primary issue is how your husband entered the U.S.; either using a visa or entering without being inspected. The next level of inquiries will be when he entered, how old he was when he entered, his education and criminal history. Without the above, it's hard to define a path for him. Please retain counsel to discuss the above and more to determine what is in the best interest for your family.
There is a common misconception that permission to work is somehow independent of any process or basis under the immigration laws. In fact, employment authorization is always dependent upon some process or status. The categories for the different processes are set by the federal regulations and must be provided when applying for work authorization. So, the better question is what process your husband would need to avail himself of to adjust his status here in the United States. As the other attorneys stated he would need a consultation to determine if he is eligible for any lawful means of adjusting his status.
