Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients are reminded that Thursday, Oct. 5, is the deadline for renewing their DACA and Employment Authorization Documents. On Sept. 5, the Trump administration moved to end DACA, with Trump calling on Congress to come up with a legislative fix in the next six months. Although work on long-term DACA legislation continues, nothing has been finalized.
BAL Analysis: Current DACA recipients whose benefits expire before March 5, 2018, should take immediate steps to renew their DACA grants and employment authorization if they have not already done so. Employers should be aware of the issues related to DACA employees and key considerations related to termination of the program. For analysis, read BAL’s FAQ “The End of DACA: What Every U.S. Employer Should Know.” BAL will continue following progress on the legislative front, and will update clients on developments. For an overview of pending legislative proposals, read BAL’s comparison here.
