Unauthorized Employment

Presently there are thousands of foreign workers in the United States in multiple occupations and under a number of employment categories authorized by the USCIS. For each employment category, there are varying requirements, conditions and periods of authorization. An individual who works outside the scope of his or her employment authorization removed or denied re-entry into the United States. There are currently no criminal penalties for engaging in unauthorized employment; however, for employers there are criminal penalties for noncompliance.
