Question Do u now or will u in d future require sponsorship 2 legally work in US- L2 with EAD?

In my job search (banking and finance jobs) there is this one question i come across on each and every job application-

"Do you now or will you in the future require sponsorship to legally work in the united states?"
and options to tick on the form are 'yes' or 'no' with no space for explanation.

So i mark 'yes' and i guess thats where my job applications get stuck.

Should I answer yes or no, since i am on L2 (visa valid for next 2 years) and currently have 2 years Employment Authorisation (EAD) where i can work for any employer in the United States ?

I understand that companies ask this question because some of them are not allowed/ do not have a policy to sponsor visas.

I want to know whether i am legally required to say 'yes' beacuse i am on L2 ( since after 2 years, my visa renewal depends on whether or not my spouse's L1 is renewed)


Do I still have a choice to say 'no' since my visa renewal gets done if my husband's gets done or i manage it on my own through a consultant... and the company i will join in both cases does not have to sponsor or pay for my visa either now or in the future.

I do not want to misrepresent any information and get thrown out of the organisation after i join, nor do I want to lose out on opportunities because of answering this question wrongly.

(There is a separate question that asks if i am legally allowed to work in the US and i answer 'yes' to that since i have an EAD)

Let me know please, it'll help a lot.
