Default working on EAD and then on GC without invoking AC21

My known friend was working on EAD but didn't file an AC21. Luckily he got his green card.

Now he has this doubt.

While working on EAD the company does not let the USCIS or DHS know about this info. Will they now let the USCIS or DHS know that the employee has changed from EAD to GC status? If so, will USCIS find out that the employee is not with his GC sponsoring company and mark it as a Fraud and revoke the GC?

The Job duties or same and similar but the salary is 40% higher than the previous job. He didn't invoke the AC21.

Is there any one who used EAD didn't let the USCIS know by invoking AC21, got the GC and working on GC without any problem?

I greatly appreciate your replys....

It is a legitimate question, and one needs to have a clear understanding of the immigration laws. I may soon be in the same boat and would like to know the situation.

Any one, please reply. thanks.

Lightbulb be mindful of what you post

you should be fine --
But, whatever the case maybe, be mindful of what you post on a public forum - you are better of contacting a lawyer in confidence rather than posting sensitive details on a public forum. AFAIK, USCIS does monitor these post, and IV will be obligated to give your details if requested.

I think there is a requirement that you must work in the job which got you the GC for a resonable amount of time (atleast 1 year IMO), unless factors beyond your control force you to look elsewhere.

There is no documentation required to "invoke AC21". As long as the new job was same or similar, he should be fine.
