The U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Foreign Labor Certification has published assignment groups for employers seeking cap-subject H-2B visas for workers with April 1 start dates.
BAL Analysis: The number of applications demonstrates the ongoing popularity of the H-2B program. The limited number of visas means that even with the supplemental allotment, some employers will not be able to hire workers for whom they had submitted applications. Employers are encouraged to work closely with BAL on H-2B strategies, including the possibility of recruiting workers from El Salvador, Guatemala, Haiti and Honduras. BAL will continue following H-2B developments and will provide updates as information becomes available.
This alert has been provided by the BAL U.S. Practice Group. For additional information, please contact email@example.com.
