H1B and EAD?
2 attorney answers
If you travel outside of the US and return on your EAD/Advance Parole, USCIS could find out. If you use your EAD for the form I-9 with your employer, USCIS can find out. If you engage in unauthorized employment while in H-1B, it's a violation of your H-1B status. And as the other attorney said, USCIS expects you to be honest.
You are expected to be honest with the Department. When you use EAD, you will be considered in violation of H-1B.
