Question
my name is dipak ive got my work permit through labor certification, i had put my work permit in bank locker, i forgot to check it for a while i checked it yesterday and my work permit is expired since oct23, can you please tell me what to do

Answer
Hi,

File a new EAD (employment authorization application) with the USCIS. However, unless you have independent employment authorization (such as valid H1B status), you should temporarily remove yourself from your employer's payroll. When the new EAD has been issued--about 2 months after filing--you can commence employment again.
