DED for Liberia Reinstated, EADs Extended through June 30, 2022

On Jan. 20, 2021, President Biden issued a memorandum directing the secretary of Homeland Security to reinstate Deferred Enforced Departure (DED) for eligible Liberians and to provide for continued work authorization, through June 30, 2022. Accordingly, DHS automatically extends DED-related Employment Authorization Documents (EADs) with a printed expiration date of March 30, 2020, or Jan. 10, 2021, through June 30, 2022.

After June 30, 2022, you will be required to reverify this employee’s work authorization on Form I-9.
