Ending E-3 Employment

Employment will end early

If an E-3 employee resigns or is terminated from the position before the end of E-3 authorization, the department should send Isis a copy of the PNF showing the last day of employment so we can withdraw the LCA and petition (if filed) and close the E-3 file. If we are unable to withdraw the LCA in a timely manner, the department may be responsible for paying back wages plus interest to the employee.

Lawful permanent residence is obtained

If the employee obtains U.S. lawful permanent residence before the end of E-3 authorization, please send Isis a copy of his/her Permanent Resident Card so we can close the E-3 file.
