Recently , a friend of mine who lost his job while on EAD had these questions.

1. He has EAD and H1B both valid till 2010. What should he use to get a jbo, ead ot h1b, what are some of the good reasons to avoid using ead as ar as possible?

2. Is he eligible for unemployment allowance.

If there is any thread where these have been answered please direct me there. Thanks
