H-2B Best Practices in Times of Caps and Lotteries - Recording (.MP3)
The coveted H-2B visa is one of the most precarious that an immigration practitioner can utilize to obtain temporary, nonagricultural labor. Not just for low-skilled, seasonal workers, employers use the H-2B to fill various temporary, non-professional positions including highly specialized professionals needed for temporary projects when H-1B, TN, B-1, and other visa categories are not appropriate. In heavy demand, the H-2B is subject to strict timing constraints and lottery selection at both the DOL and USCIS phases. Our panel of experts will explain how to avoid pitfalls to file timely applications, offer practical tips on submitting H-2B applications in the Foreign Labor Application Gateway (FLAG) system, and discuss trends in H-2B practice at DOL, USCIS, and consular posts.
