May I work in USA without working permit on E2 visa spouse.Is it possible to work in USA while I am on business trip.

Asked 10 months ago - Russell Springs, KY

I am a spouse with E2 visa.I am currently in process to get my Working Authorization in USA, but it will not arrive on time. I am entering states in Jan 2014. I will be not employeed and paid by company in USA. My salary will be covered by Europian company. My company cannot give me E2 visa as a employee, because I am not citizen of the country where is the EU company located at. My husband works for the same company and therefore I was able to get E2 visa as spouse. Can I work for sister company while I am on Business Trip till I get my Work Permit?
