        Yes you can show your photocopy. No employer asks for physical copy. As it is a replacement one, you don't have any legal obligation. All the best for your new project.

          I am not sure what do you mean by replacement EAD, I assume you are talking about EAD you will get after you have extended your OPT. In that case, you might have got some docs from USCIS that prove that you will get your EAD(that had worked in one of my friend's case when he applied for OPT extension).Also, it depends on the company policy, some company will accept photo copy until you get original, you can check with them. Additionally, if the company really likes you as a employee than they will wait until you get your EAD. Sometimes, it good to let them know the problem you are facing. Bottom Line: Talk to you employer. All the best!

                    I know it is about 3 years old post, but I could not find any concrete answers anywhere else. So were you able to work in the new company with the copy of EAD?

                    Thanks
