U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services' Temporary Protected Status webpages contain TPS-related information for nationals or former residents of South Sudan, El Salvador, Haiti, Honduras, Nicaragua, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Liberia.
For specific information from USCIS about TPS beneficiaries proving work authorization, see the USCIS webpage titled Documentation Employers May Accept and Temporary Protected Status Beneficiaries May Present as Evidence of Employment Eligibility. (Print a PDF of this page to show to an employer who doesn't understand that someone with TPS can still be work-authorized even though his or her employment authorization document has an expiration date that indicates it is expired.)
