LAC Practice Advisory on Employment Authorization and Asylum:
Strategies to Avoid Stopping the Asylum Clock
Washington, D.C.—The Legal Action Center (LAC) released an updated practice advisory, Employment Authorization And Asylum: Strategies To Avoid Stopping The Asylum Clock. This practice advisory provides an overview of the work authorization process for asylum applicants, addresses the operation of the “asylum clock,” which is used to track the 180-day waiting period during which an applicant cannot apply for work authorization, and discusses possible solutions to several common asylum clock problems. The practice advisory also discusses the policies and practices the LAC and co-counsel are challenging in a class action filed on behalf of asylum applicants harmed by the asylum clock process.
For additional resources related to the LAC’s work on employment authorization for asylum applicants, including information about the class action, visit our Asylum Clock webpage.
