The problem here will be completing the required I-9.
J Charles Ferrari Eng & Nishimura 213.622.2255 The statement above is general in nature and does not constitute legal advice, as not all the facts are known. You should retain an attorney to review all the facts specific to your case in order to receive advise specific to your case. The statement above does not create an attorney/client relationship.
If your H-1B expired, no new H-1B extension was filed and you have not yet received your EAD card, you may not be authorized to work until the actual card is received.
The problem will be with the employer and their requirement to properly complete the I-9. Without the actual EAD card in hand, the I-9 may not be able to be completed.
You may need to wait unti the EAD card is in hand.
