How does a person re-verify his or her Temporary Protected Status?
On March 8, 2013, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced the release of the new I-9 Employment Eligibility Verification Form. All employers are required to use the new I-9 immediately to verify the identity and employment authorization eligibility of their employees.

The answer is “Yes” if the employee is from a TPS-designated country and for which an automatic extension of employment authorization has been granted.
