DACA Employment Rights FAQs

DACA employment rightsAs a recipient of deferred action through DACA, you will be provided an employment authorization card (work permit). A work permit opens doors to new employment opportunities that were previously not available to you. But you should also be aware of your employment rights. Employers cannot ask DACA recipients for more or different work authorization documents than what is already permitted by Form I-9. Likewise, an employer cannot reject work authorization documents because of your citizenship status or national origin.
