I have noticed that on this question, I have been met with a lot of hostility. For example,
@picakhu, you need to see the complete I-9 handbook. If you do, you'll find that you're mixing two different categories. Permanent residency cards have expiration dates...as do driver's licenses and passports. It doesn't mean the card or license or passport is revoked after X years; it means you have to renew. The I-9 booklet is cautioning against rejecting a worker's authorization documents merely because they have an expiration date. – Kyralessa
@picakhu " I do not wish to disclose my status. " in that case, expect hiring managers to think you're an illegal or at least trying to get a job without the required status or work permits. And as hiring something like that is a crime with severe penalties, they shouldn't hire you. – jwenting
Which I feel suggest that
- I am unable to reason reasonably well or understand my situation
- I should be disallowed from keeping any personal information to myself
I think such hostility should be challenged by the moderators and some rectification is necessary.
If I am wrong on either of those counts, I would like to know.
