Young people who received deferred action on their immigration status from the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services are reminded that they need to renew their approval for that status.

Revised application forms and instructions are now available. People working under DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) should apply for renewal no later than 120 days before their current employment authorization document (EAD) expires to avoid any lapse in work authorization.

The National Immigration Law Center provides more information in “DACA and Your Workplace Rights” and in “Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Renewal Process”, both available from Josh Stehlik, NILC workers’ rights attorney at stehlik@nilc.org or Emily Tulli, NILC policy attorney, at tulli@nilc.org.
