Afghans who were paroled into the United States receive employment authorization documents. Some of these documents had mistakes. USCIS has information about requesting a corrected document on this website under the heading, “Afghan National Parolees - Information about Employment Authorization.”
Click on the heading “How to Request a Correction to Your Employment Authorization Document (EAD).”
Note that as of November 2022, Afghans paroled into the United States under OAW (and some Afghans paroled in under OEW) are authorized to work even without a valid employment authorization.
