Topic: EAD for H4 Visa Holders

I am doubtful if they are giving EAD for those whose H1b primary have switched job and not yet have approved I-140 from current employer. Previous employer's approved I-140 doesn't count. :(

(3) Pending Form I-140 immigrant petitions with new employer
Fewer than a dozen commenters requested that DHS extend employment
authorization to H-4 dependent spouses in cases where the H-1B nonimmigrants have
transferred their employment to a new employer and are in the process of obtaining
approval of a new Form I-140 petition. As noted above, however, authorizing
employment based solely on the filing (rather than the approval) of a PERM application
or Form I-140 petition is likely to encourage frivolous filings to allow the H-4 dependent
spouse to obtain employment authorization while the filings remain pending. DHS thus
is not extending this rule on the basis of pending PERM applications or Form I-140
petitions. By requiring that a Form I-140 petition first be approved, DHS will further
disincentivize frivolous filings and better serve the goal of extending the immigration
benefit of this rule to only those spouses of H-1B nonimmigrants who are genuinely on
the path to lawful permanent residence.
