Trying to figure out when your client is eligible for work authorization? Join us for an in-depth discussion of employment authorization and the asylum “clock”. The asylum clock calculates a mandatory 180-day waiting period before an asylum applicant can receive work authorization. In this webinar, we will discuss current practice after the ABT settlement so that you can successfully obtain work authorization for asylum applicants. This webinar will provide updates to EOIR’s policy for cases in Immigration Court and best practices.
