Default illegal working

A friend of mine had employment authorization. He is still working even though the authorization expired and no longer eligible to work.

What can happen to him?

Thrown out of the country, and not able to come back for ten years, if I am
not completely wrong...As well as a fine for the employer.

This recently happened to a friend of mine (on a Green Card). She was unaware that the authorization had expired and when she (and her employer) realised she was just suspended until she could get it renewed.

Of course, other types of Visas may work differently.

Uhh? Even if the GC expired, the status as permanent resident did not.
Nothing is suspended in such a case. The person continues to have
work authorization.
The original poster, however, is presumably talking about an EAD.
And in fact, the person is not allowed to work with an expired EAD.

To clarify what I said, she was suspended FROM WORK until the GC could be renewed - which took a couple of months.

The employer should not have done that. A Green Card holder is authorized
to work permanently. True, an expired GC is not enough to prove employment
eligibility for I-9 purposes, but this only applies during the initial
hiring process. Once she is hired, there is no need to ever suspend her.

I think that Joe's response referred to that exact situation. There was no
need for her to be suspended.
