Default Lost EAD

Anyone have any ideas about the following?
My husband applied for an EAD last year and received a receipt confirming approval in august, but we never got the actual card, I guess it was lost in the post. Hes been looking for work since, and finally has a job starting in a week, but has only just remembered he doesnt have the card, just the receipt. We have applied for a replacement, but will the original receipt suffice on form I-9 until the replacement arrives?
thanks!

No. He needs the actual card with his photo on it.

Thanks.
But the I-9 says " if the employee is unable to present a required document, the employee must present an acceptable receipt.....Receipts showing that a person has applied for an initial grant of employment authorization, or renewal of employment authorization, are not acceptable"

In this case we have a receipt for acceptance (not applicant, or renewal) so shouldnt this do until the card arrives?

You can try, but my guess is probably not.

If he signed an employment contract without having the EAD card in his hands, he did so illegally.
