IMPACT – MEDIUM
What is the change? Companies in need of work permits for foreign workers in job categories subject to quotas in 2017 should file their quota applications no later than Aug. 26.
What does the change mean? Companies should prepare their quota applications as soon as possible in order to meet the deadline.
Background: Filing a quota application is an annual requirement for companies that rely on foreign workers in job categories where quotas apply. Companies that do not file the applications cannot apply for work permits if quotas expire.
BAL Analysis: In addition to the mandatory quota application, employers are encouraged to file voluntary projections of their foreign labor needs for 2017 with the Department of Labor. This may allow them to receive priority consideration when additional quota numbers become available.
