H-2B Visa Regulations

On April 29, 2015 the Department of Labor, in conjunction with the Department of Homeland Security, issued long awaited regulations to greatly improve protections for persons coming to the U.S. on H-2B visas to work in temporary, seasonal jobs. As the program is currently constituted, labor trafficking flourished and foreign and U.S. workers alike frequently suffered from depressed wages and exploitative conditions. We applaud the government’s actions.
