Default Is it Mandatory to file AC21 ?

Hi,

I have an EAD (over a year now since I-140 approved), but never used it. Now, that Iam planning to switch my employer I have some questions about using EAD

1. Is it Mandatory to file AC21?

2. Is AC21 required for each contract switch ? (Suppose Contract is W2), if so, wouldnt that be hard and expensive to file for every 3 or 6 months projects?

3. Can I work on 1099?

Thanks in Advance.

1. Is it Mandatory to file AC21? No

GC is for "permanant full time" offer. So, new job based on AC21 should also be "permanant full time". If USCIS knows that you are working on a cotracr for a short term; wait for 485 denial notice.

3. Can I work on 1099? 1099 is a self-employed catagory. You can still use AC21, and self employed. Refer USCIS memos regarding AC21 and self employment.
Thanks in Advance.

Default Not really

I have seen many people on this forum that haven't notified USCIS but changed jobs.
