The 2016 Omnibus Appropriations Bill, signed on December 18, 2015, contains several provisions that impact the H-2B nonagricultural visa program. In response to these changes, the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) issued emergency guidance on December 29, 2015 (updated on January 6, 2016), regarding implementation of the new provisions. These changes come at a critical time, as practitioners and employers are rushing to file H-2B cases for the first half of the fiscal year while starting to prepare and file H-2B petitions for the second half of the fiscal year. This late-breaking seminar will discuss the impact of these changes on H-2B filings, the current status of the H-2B program under the 2015 interim final rule, and strategies for navigating the ever-changing H-2B landscape.
