Renewal of EAD (L2) when L1 and L2 extension is in progress

I am currently undergoing L1A visa extension process with I94 expiring in OCT-2019. I wanted to take your advice on below point:

My wife’s EAD is expiring along with I94 in OCT-2019. Her I-539 for L2 visa extension will be filed along with my L1 visa extension petition.
Can she continue to work after OCT-2019 based on her I-539 application receipt number even after EAD card expiry?
I read on some forums that "he/she may continue his/her previously approved activities in the United States
(including previously authorized work) for a maximum period of 240 days. " Pls advise.

Can i file her Renewal of EAD with L1A and L2 extension receipt # ?

Any advice will be really helpful. Thanks in advance.

Hi @Matt

Your wife cannot work if her L2 EAD expires and the renewal is pending. Whatever you have read is completely wrong.

I have covered it in detail here with USCIS link that says L2 EAD is not allowed to work until the extention or renewal of card is not approved.

The article talks about H4 EAD and L2 EAD as they both have same rules for renewal.

You can file L2 EAD with L1 receipt number.
