I-765 Replacement EAD / I-9 Receipt Rule / 90 Day Unemployment Rule
Just wondering if anyone in the forum can help me with this question.
My original EAD applied for in June 12, 2010 was approved on Sep 2, 2010. But, the document was lost in mail and after 90 days I was instructed by USCIS to reapply.
And, I did reapply on Oct 12, 2010 and the case is pending on initial review although I received the I-797 Notice of Action 'Replacement Receipt' on Oct 15, 2010.
According to the I-9 Receipt rule, I can start work for a period of 90 days using the 'replacement receipt' which is just a similar receipt for an I-765 application but for a replacement EAD (lost in mail). This is in the I-9 handbook in the uscis.gov site.
My question is:
According to the 90 day unemployment rule starting April 8, 2008, if we start employment using the I-9 receipt rule, do the days of unemployment still count against the aggregate of 90 days allowed after the OPT start date ?( which in my case is Sep 20, 2010.. I presume because this is the date I had provided on the approved original EAD application which was approved on Sep, 2nd, 2010 and I had lost in the mail).
So, basically in this special case where both the I-9 receipt rule & 90 day unemployment rule apply, what happens with the umemployed days accrued even if i accept employment?
Any help would be deeply appreciated.
