I did not understand section 4405. Does it mean that we can no longer change employer on EAD?

I am no expert, but i think it has to do with EAD card expiry and continuing employment even if it is expired will support continuation of employment while application is pending... any one can validate my thoughts ?

"(u) Treatment of Nonimmigrants During Adjudication of Application.A nonimmigrant
alien granted employment authorization pursuant to sections 101(a)(15)(A), 101(a)(15)(E),
101(a)(15)(G), 101(a)(15)(H), 101(a)(15)(I), 101(a)(15)(J), 101(a)(15)(L), 101(a)(15)(O),
101(a)(15)(P), 101(a)(15)(Q), 101(a)(15)(R), 214(e), and such other sections as the Secretary of
Homeland Security may by regulations prescribe whose status has expired but who has, or whose
sponsoring employer or authorized agent has, filed a timely application or petition for an
extension of such employment authorization and nonimmigrant status as provided under
subsection (a) is authorized to continue employment with the same employer until the
application or petition is adjudicated. Such authorization shall be subject to the same conditions
and limitations as the initial grant of employment authorization.."

I do not see the removal of 5 year limit or adjustment to 10 years for STEM Masters in this fixed PDF.

Can you let me know how to find it?

Sharing of immigration paperwork applicants is something IV has been advocating for ages...those of you who were in the last year's November and this year's March advocacy day would have noted this was in our advocacy packet as well. That it has made it into the bill is testament to our relationship with key offices. This is how advocacy works..brick by brick.

By the way as Admin has clarified we are looking into what these first round of amendments to the base bill are...

I like section 4232 on page 278

Not really..it just states that until adjudication of application (applied under the new sections) is completed, applicant can continue employment even if status expires...similar to existing rules....just extends it to the new sections.

Seems the ammendments we hoped are proposed by Senators for S744

S.744 Amendments (http://www.judiciary.senate.gov/legislation/immigration/amendments.cfm)

They include

1. No 5 year graduation limit for STEM graduates
2. No CAP for STEM graduates of Masters or Higher
3. No CAP for country based
4. No CAP spouse and children

The same contents of I- 169 (Immigration Innovation act)

You can check at below ammendments and let me know if my assessment is wrong
