Leading business organizations, universities and immigration groups filed lawsuits Monday challenging Trump administration regulations that amend H-1B eligibility criteria and wage requirements for the H-1B, H-1B1 and E-3 categories and permanent labor certifications (PERM).
Additional Information: Both the DHS and DOL rules were published Oct. 8, with the DOL rule taking effect immediately and the DHS rule set to take effect Dec. 7, 60 days from publication. In a separate lawsuit, a group of IT and computer-service companies sued on Friday in federal court in New Jersey to stop enforcement of the DOL regulation.
BAL Analysis: Both the DOL and DHS rules are now subject to litigation, and the challengers are seeking injunctions to block the government from enforcing them while the litigation proceeds. The rules will remain in effect unless a judge grants an injunction. BAL is closely monitoring the progress of these lawsuits and will provide updates on important developments.
